“Cuando vayamos al mar
yo te diré mi secreto:
Me envuelve, pero no es ola...
Me amarga..., pero no es sal...”
Dulce Maria Loynaz

“If you love me, love me whole
not by zones of light or shadow…
if you love me, love me black
and white, and gray and green and blond,
and mixed…
love me day,
love me night…
and in the morning with the open window!

If you love me, don’t break me in pieces:
love me whole… Or do not love me at all.”
Dulce María Loynaz

“Eché mi esperanza al mar:
y aún fue en el mar, mi esperanza
verde-mar...”
Dulce María Loynaz, A Woman in Her Garden: Selected Poems
