Poetry Spot #2

Hello chicos y chicas! Hoy les traigo mi segundo Poetry Spot.

poetry spotEl poema de hoy se titula “One Art” de Elizabeth Bishop. Es en inglés, pero igualmente abajo escribiré de qué trata y mi opinión:

One Art

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster,

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three beloved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

-- Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) a disaster.

Este poema me gustó muchísimo. Trata de que el arte de perder las cosas no es difícil de ser un experto en ello. Nos dice que primero empecemos perdiendo cosas materiales, como un reloj, una parada del autobús, lugares, etc. y así de esta manera vemos como van perdiendo la importancia de las cosas que no son realmente importantes. Luego que perdamos un amor, una casa, algo más grande y significativo, y que aun así no será un desastre.

Pienso que este poema quiere decir que la vida sigue, no importa lo que suceda, y que debemos entender que todos perdemos algo todos los días, sea material o no.

Espero que les haya gustado! Por favor no olviden comentar! Hasta Pronto!
