Mi Blanca Nieves

Mi Blanca Nieves

A Poem by emipoemi

No subestimes la capacidad            Don’t underrate the capability

De mi amor- existo yo por ti;            That my love bears- I am because of you;

Respiro sólo cuando junto a mí          I breathe whenever you come into view,

Estés, sonriendo tras tu suavidad.   And smile beside me in your suavity.

 

No dudes en los místicos placeres   Don’t underestimate the grand delights

Que alimentan la felicidad.                    That nurture happiness and gaiety.

En tu mirífica divinidad                        In your admirable divinity
Hay la sincera afirmación que eres   
Sincerely lies the proof that you’re by right

Mi Blanca Nieves.                                   My Snow White!

 

Blanco tu piel,                                    White be your skin,

Negro tu pelo,                                    Black be your hair,

Dulce y fiel,                                       Sweet, without sin

Sin par en consuelo.                        In support, no compare.

 

La Naturaleza                                    Nature, pure in her duty,

Forjó tu belleza,                                 Had fashioned your beauty,

Ampliando tu resplandor;                  So your splendour spreads to your feet;

Y siempre es sagrado                        And it fills me with pride

Estar a tu lado,                                When I stand by your side,

Envuelto en tu calor.                        Enshrouded in your heat.

Que eres hasta la muerte                    For ’til death do us part

Mi santa de suerte-                             You’re the jewel of my heart-

Mi único amor.                                    My love, my life, my sweet.


Me quitas de cualquier mordaz dolor,  You rid me of whatever biting pain,

Me quitas de cualquier voraz horror,    You rid me of whatever ruthless bane,

Y siempre rielas como una flor.  And ever brightly gleam, come shine, come rain.

 

Me das los más idílicos placeres,              You furnish me with such ideal delights,

Me das los más espléndidos enseres, You furnish me with such tenacious might.

Me das fruición y gran honor que eres You give me joy to know that you’re by right

Mi Blanca Nieves.                                        My Snow White!

Trully a great poem! It reminds me of a poem from Luis de Camões, (the Portuguese author of "Lusiadas"). In a poem called Claimed Barbara the slave (endechas Bárbara a escrava) he talks about his love with a slave. The two poems are really different and at the same time pretty similar, it's beautifull to see the differences between the two women but it's equal the love that it's shown.
Very well done, especially in spanish!

Spring loaded this one is. I kept waiting for the subtle saturation of tension to be unloaded.

What a pure and lovely confession. Trust me that requires courage. Hope the one being talked of in the poem sees the hidden, immense affection with which it has been written. Beautifully done!

Well...let's just keep the fingers crossed! You're welcome.
I’ve always loved when the significance of a name gets used and explored in depth. The character, Snow White, in and of herself is beautoful to comprare someone to, but the connotations of her name, and just how pure of a nature it conveys, adds so much to such a comparison.
I also think the line “existo yo por ti” is powerful.
Beautiful poem!
