Music, p. 183

Dance and music mediate between the sensual and the spiritual life.  Ludvig van Beethoven (modified quote)

thFinally, an old love is neither left or forgotten. The old lovers come together.

 

Un viejo amor (translated below)

Por unos ojazos negros,
igual que penas de amores,
hace tiempo tuve anhelos,
alegrías y sinsabores.
Y al dejarlos algún día,
me decían así llorando,
no te olvides vida mía
de lo que te estoy cantando:
Que un viejo amor
       ni se olvida ni se deja.
       Que un viejo amor,
       de nuestra alma sí se aleja,
       pero nunca dice adiós.
       Que un viejo amor…
Ha pasado mucho tiempo,
y otra vez vi aquellos ojos,
me miraron con despejo,
fríamente y sin enojo.
Y al notar ese desprecio
de ojos que por mí lloraron,
pregunté si con el tiempo
sus recuerdos olvidaron:
Que un viejo amor
       ni se olvida ni se deja.
       Que un viejo amor,
       de nuestra alma sí se aleja,
       pero nunca dice adiós.
       Que un viejo amor…
       Que un viejo amor…

An old love

For a pair of ardent black eyes
just like the sorrow of a love,
long ago I had desires,
happiness and grievous time.
And on leaving them one day
they were saying to me crying,
don’t you ever forget, darling,
what to you I am singing now:
that an old love
you neither forget nor drop.
That an old love,
may go away from our heart
but it never says good-bye.
That an old love…
– – –
A long time has passed by,
and I saw those eyes again,
they looked at me with indifference
coldly and without contempt.
And when I noticed that disdain
from the eyes that cried for me,
I wondered if with the time
they forgot their memories.
That an old love
you neither forget nor drop.
That an old love,
may go away from our heart
but it never says good-bye.
That an old love…
That an old love…
