Be Careful

28 10 2008

Cuídate, Claudia, cuando estés conmigo,
porque el gesto más leve cualquier palabra, un suspiro
de Claudia, el menor descuido,
tal vez un día lo examinen eruditos,
y este baile de Claudia se recuerde por siglos.

Claudia, ya te lo aviso.

-Ernesto Cardenal

Be careful, Claudia, when you are with me,
For any word or gesture or sigh you let free,
Any part of Claudia, the most minor thing
May be the subject of erudite inquiries
And Claudia’s dance may rise again for centuries.

Claudia, I am warning you now.
