Poem: Falling Drops (translation of Gotas que Caen)

Selected Verses:

Falling Drops
(Gotas que Caen)

Many love in cloudless skies,
sunny skies, fully radiant;
but love resides in aqueous perfumes:
Drops that fall and compel me to love you.

I love in torrents of copious rains.
I submerge in waters wanting to find you
until your body is found invaded by droplets:
Drops that fall and compel me to love you.

In Heaven, your body dresses with droplets,
framing your form like a masterpiece;
pouring from your breasts like cascades:
Drops that fall and compel me to love you.

It’s a chant of love to the rain,
who shares her bed with passions;
sensual, over me, and spilling in liturgy:
Drops that fall and compel me to love you.
