The Bridge
 
Between now and now,between I am and you are,the word bridge.Entering ityou enter yourself:the world connectsand closes like a ring.From one bank to another,there is alwaysa body stretched:a rainbow.I’ll sleep beneath its arches

The Bridge

 

Between now and now,
between I am and you are,
the word bridge.

Entering it
you enter yourself:
the world connects
and closes like a ring.

From one bank to another,
there is always
a body stretched:
a rainbow.
I’ll sleep beneath its arches

 

Octavio Paz
