Editor's Note: The Chilean pee Fame Nernda and the
Welsh poet Dylan Thomas express contrasting concepts of
death in the two. poems presented today.
By Pablo Nernda,
There are lonely cemeteries,
graves lull of bones without sound,
the heart passing through a tunnel,
dark, dark, dark,
as in a shipwreck we die from within
as we drown in the heart,
as we fall out of the skin into the soul.
There are corpses,
there are feet of cold, sticky clay,
there is death within bones,
like pure sound,
like barking without dogs,
emanating from several bells, from several graves,
swelling in the humidity like tears or rain.
I see, alone, at times
coffins with sails.
bearing away pallid dead, women with dead tresses,
bakers white as angels,
pensive girls married to public notaries,
coffins ascending the vertical river of the dead,
the purple river,
upstream, with sails filled by the sound of death,
filled by the silent sound of death.
To the sonorous shore death arrives
like a shoe without a foot, like a suit without a man,
arrives to knock a toneless, fingerless ring,
arrives to shout without a mouth, without a tongue,
without a throat.
Still its steps echo,
and its clothing echoes, hushed, like a tree,
I do not know, I understand but little, I scarcely see,
but I think that its song has the color of humid violets,
of violets accustomed to the soil,
for the face of death is green,
with the penetrating moisture of a violet leaf
and Its sombre color of exasperated winter.
But death also goes through the world disguised as a
lapping the floor, in search of the dead,
death is in the broom.
Is the tongue of death seeking the dead,
is the needle of death seeking the thread.
Death Is in the folding cots;
in the slow mattresses, in the black blankets
it lives supine, and suddenly it blows:
it blows a dismal sound that swells up the sheets;
and the beds go sailing toward a port
where death is waiting, dressed like an admiral.
Translated by Angel FloresC
AND DEATH SHALL HAVE
By Dylan Thomas
And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean borne
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise agate;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.
And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two.
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't track;
And death shall have no dominion.
And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
lift its head to the blows of the rain:
Though they be made and dead as mils,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sm till the sun breaks down,
'And death shalll have no dominion.
