ESTATUAS STATUES
trans. the poet Robert Gurney
(a Juan Larrea)

Hacía un frío
de estatuas invisibles.

Luego la niebla
se disipó
y vimos
una mujer gigantesca
acostada en la hierba.

Hace un frío
de estatuas visibles.
(to Juan Larrea)

There was a cold
of invisible statues.

The mist lifted
and we saw
a gigantic woman
lying glistening
on the grass.

There was a cold
of visible statues.
