I catch the pattern
Of your silence
Before you speak.

I do not need
To hear a word.

In your silence
Every tone I seek
Is heard.

Langston Hughes

Autumn verses in the spring

En la tarde lluviosa
mi corazón aprende
la tragedia otoñal
que los árboles llueven.


In the rain-swept afternoon
my heart discovers
the tragedy of autumn
raining from the trees.

Federico García Lorca
