              CLEAR STREAM

            The stream
yields to its destiny: the loveliest is very little.

Along the clear stream goes eternal beauty.

            No, there are no nymphs.
Clarity is the one who discovers delight.

            Clear water
suggests to the eyes the fable's depths.

            Now a few fish,
sudden lightning, dream themselves into view.


Jorge Guillén
