Poem text

WAR

Old age in the villages,
Heart without a master,
Love without an object,
Grass, dust, a crow -
And what of youth?

In the grave.

Dry solitary tree,
Woman a log
Widowed on her bed,
Hate without cure -
And what of youth?

In the grave.

        Miguel Hernandez
        trans. Edward Lucie-Smith
