III. Aquí

3. Aquí
Gracias, violines, por este día
de cuatro cuerdas. Puro
es el sonido del cielo,
la voz azul del aire.
Me vine aquí a contar las campanas
que viven en el mar,
que suenan en el mar,
dentro del mar.
Por eso vivo aquí.
3. Here
Thank you, violins, for this day
of four strings. Pure
is the sound of the sky,
the azure voice of the air.
I came here to tell of the bells
that dwell in the sea,
that toll in the sea,
within the sea.
This is why I live here.
