Jorge Guillén: The monsters have passed over

Jorge Guillén
Cemetery

Neither grieving nor imprisoned but lying alone
Quiet at last between earth and still more
Earth: the unsuffering skeleton, made bone.
Rest peacefully, free of our presences, under our war.

***

Camposanto

Yacente a solas, no está afligido, no está preso,
Pacificado al fin entre tierra y más tierra,
El esqueleto sin angustria, a sola hueso,
¡Descanse en paz, sin nosotros, bajo nuestra guerra!
