Becquer: Rhyme 21 (From Spanish)

Rhyme 21
By Gustavo Adolfo Becquer
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

"What's poetry?" You ask me, as you rivet
Into my pupil your pupil of blue
"What's poetry?" You of all people ask me?
Poetry is you.

The Original:

Rima 21

¿Qué es poesía?, dices mientras clavas
en mi pupila tu pupila azul.
¡Qué es poesía! ¿Y tú me lo preguntas?
Poesía eres tú.
