Day 25

In 5th line on January 25, 2009 at 2:11 pm

“Se sentia inquieto en Virginia entre sus hermanos aristocratas, hasta que un otono llameante tobo un caballo, y galopo sobre las montanas para desposar a una cheroki de ojos en forma de hojas.”~~from the poem “Poniendome un nombre”   from the book Another America by Barbara Kingsolver

OK, I’ll admit that it’s possible this doesn’t translate correctly, mainly because I can’t figure out how to make the symbols above the words and/or letters. But I think I enjoy Kingsolver’s poetry more than her fiction. Such tight storytelling in this collection make it a necessary read.
