Shadows

In honor of the Mexican holiday, Constitution Day, we present this work by one of Mexico’s great poets.

Rosario Sansores
Mexican
1889 – 1972

 

When you will be gone
The shadows will envelop me,
When you will be gone,
I will be alone with my pain.

I will evoke this idyll
During my blue hours
When you will be gone
The shadows will envelop me.

And in the darkness
Of the small bedroom
Where during a warm afternoon
I stroked all of you
My arms will look for you
My mouth will kiss you
And I will inhale from the air
That smell of roses.
When you will be gone
The shadows will envelop me.
