Coral del Arrecife (1996): Texts
   [Texts]
 
From Oceana (in Cantos Ceremoniales)
by Pablo Neruda


Oceana, dame las conchas del arrecife
Parta cubrir con sus relámpagos los muros,
Los Spondylus, heroes coronados de espinas,
El esplendor morado del murex en su roca:
Tú sabes como sobre la sal ultramarina
En su nave de nieve navega el argonauta.


Oceana, give me the shells of the reef
To cover the walls with their lightning
The Spondylus, heros crowned with thorns
The splendor of the murex on the rocks:
You know how, over the ultramarine salt,
In his vessel of snow, the Argonaut sails.
