    VOY A DORMIR
    Dientes de flores, cofia de rocío,
    manos de hierbas, tú, nodriza fina,
    tenme prestas las sábanas terrosas
    y el edredón de musgos escardados.

    Voy a dormir, nodriza mía, acuéstame.
    Ponme una lámpara a la cabecera;
    una constelación; la que te guste;
    todas son buenas; bájala un poquito.

    Déjame sola: oyes romper los brotes…
    te acuna un pie celeste desde arriba
    y un pájaro te traza unos compases

    para que olvides… Gracias. Ah, un encargo:
    si él llama nuevamente por teléfono
    le dices que no insista, que he salido…

      I AM GOING TO SLEEP

      Teeth of flowers, hairnet of dew,
      hands of herbs, you, perfect wet nurse,
      prepare the earthly sheets for me
      and the down quilt of weeded moss.

      I am going to sleep, my nurse, put me to bed.
      Set a lamp at my headboard;
      a constellation; whatever you like;
      all are good: lower it a bit.

      Leave me alone: you hear the buds breaking through . . .
      a celestial foot rocks you from above
      and a bird traces a pattern for you

      so you’ll forget . . . Thank you. Oh, one request:
      if he telephones again
      tell him not to keep trying for I have left . . .
