night in May by Jose Marti

With its star the earth is illuminated;
With the perfume of a flower are filled
The immense ambiences. As it wanders,
The mysterious covering, a tenuous light
Conceals Nature, and the same image
Of the boundary on which it finishes sprouts
Within the human struggle. Silence!
In the color, darkness! Turn on the Sun
To the noisy people and shine
The white light of the moon! In the eyes,
Where the image goes, because it will go look for
In the hurt glass the admirable essence,
In a bundle of aromas to the eyes surge;
And if to the weight of the eyelid obey,
Like the flower that folds when the wings fold
With it its perfume, in the solemn
Inside temple likes a sad lament
The pale figure rises!
Divine profession! The whole Universe,
Without losing its form, acquires the form
Of the loved woman, and the absent husband,
The posthumous heaven guesses
For the purified and chaste pain.
