Amapola / Poppy

Amapola
Labios rojos y
Vestido verde
Creces en la tierra olvidada
de una guerra inolvidable.
Amapola
Bailas con el viento
Reflejas el sol
Y no bebes la muerte
Debajo de tu cuerpo.
Amapola
Silenciada
Pero con una voz de paz.
No olvidaremos
las visiones que
a través de los años
te han hecho sufrir
Amapola
Dinos las razones
de nuestras acciones
con tu habilidad de convertir
muerte en belleza.
Amapola
Enséñanos la serenidad
Y muéstranos la importancia
Del silencio.


Poppy
Red lips and
Green dress
You grow in the forgotten earth
of an unforgettable war.
Poppy
You dance with the wind
You reflect the sun
And you do not drink the death
Under your body.
Poppy
Silenced
But with a voice of peace.
We will not forget
The sights that
You have suffered over the years.
Poppy
Tell us the reasons
For our actions
With your ability
To convert
Death to beauty.
Poppy
Teach us serenity
And show us the importance
Of silence.
