For Ursula – P.D. Lyons

I had to write
One poem which took
Thousands of years to
Write, thousands of years
To translate and thousands
Of years to be delivered
To dragons who
Took a thousand years
To read it out loud
So it was only after many lives
That I finally heard
The last word
But by then
No longer believing in dragons it made no sense.

Tenía que escribir
Un poema que duró
Miles de años en
Escribir, miles de años
En traducir y miles
De años en llegar
A dragones que
Tardaron mil años
En leerlo en voz alta
Así ocurrió sólo después de muchas vidas
Al fin oí
La última palabra
Pero entonces
No creyendo más en dragones ya no tenía sentido.
