Cuenta atrás 6: Cristina Peri Rossi

Countdown poem #6: "Oración"  (Prayer) by Cristina Peri Rossi.  After reading the poem (and translating it), I thought of THIS.


Líbranos, Señor,
de encontrarnos,
años después,
con nuestros grandes amores.


Deliver us, Lord,
from meeting up,
years later,
with the loves of our lives.

(Translation by Catherine Chandler)
