La peregrina de la selva profética / José Antonio Ramos Sucre

The Pilgrim of the Prophetic Jungle

The Castilian woman roams the forest. Her song awakens the density. The trees return from the drowsiness of the night and its fog.
     The languid voice declares affections and memories of absence. It mentions the only brother, fascinated, at the beginning of his youth, by the example of tough leaders in ultramarine kingdoms. He departed on a fast horse, conqueror of dragons, and an eagle was following the hero’s flight.
     A traveler supplies a quick piece of news, laboriously recalled after the anxiety of an impassable sea.
     The hero has been lost amidst a labyrinth of mountains, where indifferent roads cross each other and the spring of a nameless river is born, nourished by the rains.
     The entire forest exhales compassionate voices, and a poplar, the most beautiful of all, planted by the absent one, has collapsed onto the simple source.
