Ama tu ritmo ~ Rubén Darío

Ama tu ritmo y ritma tus acciones
bajo su ley, así como tus versos;
eres un universo de universos
y tu alma una fuente de canciones.

La celeste unidad que presupones
hará brotar en ti mundos diversos,
y al resonar tus números dispersos
pitagoriza en tus constelaciones.

Escucha la retórica divina
del pájaro del aire y la nocturna
irradiación geométrica adivina;
mata la indiferencia taciturna
y engarza perla y perla cristalina
en donde la verdad vuelca su urna.


Love your rhythm, and rhythm your actions
under its law, as well as your verses;
you are a universe of universes
and your soula fount of songs.

The celestial unity you presuppose
will cause to sprout in your diverse worlds,
and upon echoing your dispersed
numbers, pythagorize in your constellations.

Listen to the divine
rhetoric of the airborne bird and divine
the nocturnal geometric emanation;

kill taciturn indifference
and link pearl after crystaline pearl
where truth tips her urn.
