Full Moon

by Juan Ramon Jimenez

English version by Robert Bly
Original Language Spanish

     The door is open,
the cricket is singing.
Are you going around naked
in the fields?

     Like an immortal water,
going in and out of everything.
Are you going around naked
in the air?

     The basil is not asleep,
the ant is busy.
Are you going around naked
in the house?

-- from The Winged Energy of Delight, Translated by Robert Bly
