Homework

“Dueños por un instante” (juan ramón Jiménez)

The topic of the poem is love. The author is describing the very moment of falling in love, how empowering it feels (“dueños del destino”), how everything else stops mattering (“soledad”(solitude), “silencio” (silence)) . The lover is referred to in the beginning as a flower, as the sun and as a bird, and love as the smell of that flower, rays of light and the unexpected in general.

All that is around the protagonist stops existing (again “soledad” and “silencio”)  at that very moment and the only things he can “see” are the guest (his future lover), himself and a mystery. The relationship between the two people is still new and fresh, so the protagonist doesn’t have any memories that would hold him back. And then comes the moment when he realizes he is in love, when he recovers conscience of the entourage and even reimagines it, when the lover appears in front of him, when the “I” becomes “we”.

El olor de una flor nos hace dueños,
por un instante, del destino;
el sol del cielo azul que, por la tarde,
la puerta que se entreabre deja entrar;
el presentir una alegría justa;
un pájaro que viene a la ventana;
un momento de algo inesperado…

No hay en la soledad y en el silencio
más que nosotros tres
-visita, hombre, misterio-.

El tiempo y los recuerdos
no son nudos de atajos,
sino de luz y aire. Andamos sonriendo
sobre el tranquilo mar. La casa es dulce,
bellas sus vistas…

Y, un instante,
reinamos, ¡pobres!, sobre nuestra vida.
