Wife (to my) by Jose M Heredia

When in the fervid veins stung the ferocious youth?
In my songs the tormentuous toil of my passions
With painful tears poured.

Today I dedicate them to you, my wife,
When love, farther free of illusions,
Inflamed our pure hearts, and serene
And peaceful the day looks to me.

Lost like this in turbulent seas miserable navigator
To heaven implores, when the grave storm ails;
And from the free shipwreck, in the altars
Consecrates loyal to the deity that adores
The moist relics of its ship.

Wife (to my) by Jose M Heredia
