Victor Hugo - Lace and Ghosts vignette. 1856

El remanso del aire
bajo la rama del eco.
-
El remanso del agua
bajo fronda de luceros.
-
El remanso de tu boca
bajo espesura de besos.

***
The still pool of air
under the branch of echo.
-
The still pool of water
under a frond of stars.
-
The still pool of your mouth
under a thicket of kisses.

—Federico García Lorca, Remansos: Variación
