"Canción de otoño en primavera"

¡Juventud, divino tesoro,
ya te vas para no volver!
Cuando quiero llorar, no lloro,
y a veces lloro sin querer...

Ruben Darío

I don't have the energy, much less the inspiration, to put this feeling into words. I can't translate this excerpt of Ruben Darío properly, but I will try to describe the feeling that it speaks to in me right now- I'm feeling as if I've run out of time, or as though there really isn't enough time to begin with, even though my life is still at the beginning; or even possibly at its peak. The title of his poem in English is "Song of Autumn in the Springtime."

  1. Your description and the title make me want to know more. I think I get the feeling.
