YOUR EYES ARE BLUE
by: Gustavo Adolfo Becquer (1836-1870)
- our eyes are blue, and when you laugh,
- Their smooth clarity reminds me
- Of the shimmering glow of morning
- Reflected in the sea.
- Your eyes are blue, and when you cry,
- Your transparent tears
- Seem to me dewdrops
- Upon a violet.
- Your eyes are blue, and if in their depths
- An idea radiates like a point of light,
- I think of the evening sky
- And a lost star!
