27. This is not a Haiku

But it came to mind with your last haiku...

In its hidden beauty
like a soul, does the pearl know
that its softness and luster
was engendered by pain?

But who is worthy of hidden joy
but he who knows
how to engender tender and lustrous
a pearl from his own pain?

- Adoration
Leopoldo Lugones (1874 - 1938)


En su hermosura escondida
Como un alma, ¿acaso sabe
La perla nítida y suave,
Que es engendro de la herida?

Mas, de la dicha escondida
Sólo es digno aquél que sabe
Engendrar, nítida y suave,
Una perla de su herida.
