Método fácil y rápido para ser poeta, volumen II

Travesía. Elsa López (Poesía Hiperión 2006)


Allí el campo se abre,
se extiende por las manos,
se hace olor a tinajas y a tierra cosechada.
Allí es la luz y el aire por cuartos y azoteas.
Allí Paula presiente el paso de las nubes,
con la inquieta certeza de las aves.

Bessie Smith (1894-1937)



Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
(1929)

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
I carried my friends out for a good time
Bying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low
I didn't have a friend, and no place to go
So if I ever get my hand on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till them eagle's green

Nobody knows you when you down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends I haven't any
But If I ever get on my feet again
Then I'll meet my long lost friend
It's mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you down and out
I mean when you down and out

Mmmmmmmm.... when you're down and out
Mmmmmmmm... not one penny
And my friends I haven't any
Mmmmmmmm... Well I felt so low
Nobody wants me round their door
Mmmmmmmm... Without a doubt,
No man can use you wen you down and out
I mean when you down and out
