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.




Oración

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


Prayer 

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





(Translation by Catherine Chandler)
