Dentro del vergel

Dentro del vergel
moriré
dentro del rosal
matar me han.
Yo me iba, mi madre,
las rosas coger,
hallara la muerte
dentro del vergel.
Yo me iba, madre,
las rosas cortar,
hallara la muerte
dentro del rosal.
Dentro del vergel
moriré,
dentro del rosal
matar me han.

In the garden
I will die
In the roses
they will kill me.
I was going, Mother,
to pick roses,
I found death
in the garden.
I was going, Mother,
to cut roses,
and I found death
all in the petals.
In the garden
I will die,
in the roses
I shall be killed.

  1. Oooh, then I’ll have to wait to find out the Gnostic meaning! I do not understand the poem except that I think it means the speaker expects to be killed by a rival lover. (At dawn, of course, which is when such things happen. 😉 )
