THE GABRIELA MISTRAL YOUTH POETRY COMPETITION

THE TENTH ANNUAL

GABRIELA MISTRAL YOUTH POETRY COMPETITION

Un río suena siempre cerca.
Ha cuarenta años que lo siento.
Es canturía de mi sangre
o bien un ritmo que me dieron.

A river sounds ceaseless near.
For forty years I’ve sensed it.
It is the singsong of my blood
or a rhythm I was gifted.
