Hilda Hilst


XXII

No me busques ahí
donde los vivos visitan
a los llamados muertos.
Búscame
dentro de las grandes aguas
en las plazas
en el fuego corazón
entre caballos, perros,
en los arrozales, en el arroyo
o junto a los pájaros
o en el reflejo
de otro alguien,
subiendo un duro camino
Piedra, semilla, sal
pasos de la vida. Búscame ahí.
Viva.

De: Da morte. Odes mínimas [1980]

(Traducido por Leo Lobos).

Extraído de aquí.


***

Do not look for me there
Where the living call upon
The so-called dead.
Look for me
Within the deep waters
In squares
Within a heart fire
Between horses, dogs,
In the ricefields, along the high bank
Or with the birds
Or mirrored
In someone else,
Climbing a hard path
Rock, seed, salt
Life's paths. Look for me there.
Alive.

***

Não me procures ali
Onde os vivos visitam
Os chamados mortos.
Procura-me
Dentro das grandes águas
Nas praças
Num fogo coração
Entre cavalos, cães,
Nos arrozais, no arroio
Ou junto aos pássaros
Ou espelhada
Num outro alguém,
Subindo um duro caminho

Pedra, semente, sal
Passos da vida. Procura-me ali.
Viva.
