Reading:
If to recover what was recovered (Si para recobrar lo recobrado) by Francisco Luis Bernárdez from the book Cielo de tierra (1937).

 

If to recover what was recovered
I had to first lose what was lost,
I have well suffered what was suffered,
I have well cried what was cried.

Because after everything I have understood
That what the tree has visibly in bloom
Thrives of what is buried beneath.

Si para recobrar lo recobrado
debí perder primero lo perdido,
tengo por bien sufrido lo sufrido,
tengo por bien llorado lo llorado.

Porque después de todo he comprendido
que lo que tiene el árbol de florido
vive de lo que tiene sepultado.
