Epitaph to Horacio Quiroga

by

Baldomero Fernández Moreno
(translated by Mark Andrew Holmes)

 

Behold the ashes, O Salto, of your son.
You left and it's fair and it's natural to come back.
The heart of a tree is already its eternal shelter:
The silence, the shadow and the dread of the jungle.

 

 

Go Back
