Reflection + Reflexión 1.6.14

Look at the stars! Look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there! …
These are indeed the barn; withindoors house
The shocks. This piece-bright paling shuts the spouse
Christ home, Christ and his mother and all his hallows.

~Gerard Manley Hopkins

Thanks to all who participated!

Lyrics:

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me dio dos luceros que cuando los abro
perfecto distingo lo negro del blanco
y en el alto cielo su fondo estrellado
y en las multitudes el hombre que yo amo.

Gracias a la vida, que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado el oido que en todo su ancho
graba noche y dia grillos y canarios
martillos, turbinas, ladridos, chubascos
y la voz tan tierna de mi bien amado.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado el sonido y el abedecedario
con él las palabras que pienso y declaro
madre amigo hermano y luz alumbrando,
la ruta del alma del que estoy amando.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados
con ellos anduve ciudades y charcos,
playas y desiertos montañas y llanos
y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me dio el corazón que agita su marco
cuando miro el fruto del cerebro humano,
cuando miro el bueno tan lejos del malo,
cuando miro el fondo de tus ojos claros.

Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado la risa y me ha dado el llanto,
así yo distingo dicha de quebranto
los dos materiales que forman mi canto
y el canto de ustedes que es el mismo canto
y el canto de todos que es mi propio canto.

Google translation:

Thanks to life which has given me so much
gave me two eyes that when I open
perfectly distinguish black from white
and in the sky above, her starry backdrop
and the multitudes the man I love.

Thanks to life, which has given me so much
has given me an ear that, in all its breadth
night and day recorded crickets and canaries
Hammers and turbines and bricks and storms
and the tender voice of my beloved.

Thanks to life which has given me so much
has given me sound and the alphabet
With them the words to think and speak
mother, friend, brother and the light shining
the path of life, which I love.

Thanks to life which has given me so much
I’ve given up my tired feet
with them I have traversed cities and puddles,
beaches and deserts, mountains and plains
And your house, your street and your patio.

Thanks to life which has given me so much
gave me the heart that flutters in its
when I see the fruit of the human brain
when I look good so far from bad,
when I see the bottom of your beautiful eyes.

Thanks to life which has given me so much
has given me laughter and tears have given me,
so I distinguish happiness and pain
the two materials that make up my song
and your song is the same song
and singing of all that is my own song.
