Eternal Love

We present this work in honor of the 150th anniversary of the poet’s death.

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer
Spanish
1836 – 1870

 

The face of the sun may darken forever;
The oceans may run dry in an instant;
The axis spinning our planet may shatter;
Like a brittle crystal.
Yes, all of that may happen! At the end, Death
May cover my flesh with his funeral shroud;
But none of it will reach within my soul and extinguish
The bright flame of your love.
