That One Analysis

Author: poem of Jorge Luis Borges Type: poem Views: 15

Oh days devoted to the useless burden

of putting out of mind the biography

of a minor poet of the Southem Hemisphere,

to whom the fates or perhaps the stars have given

a body which will leave behind no child,

and blindness, which is semi-darkness and jail,

and old age, which is the dawn of death,

and fame, which absolutely nobody deserves,

and the practice of weaving hendecasyllables,

and an old love of encyclopedias

and fine handmade maps and smooth ivory,

and an incurable nostalgia for the Latin,

and bits of memories of Edinburgh and Geneva

and the loss of memory of names and dates,

and the cult of the East, which the varied peoples

of the teeming East do not themselves share,

and evening trembling with hope or expectation,

and the disease of entymology,

and the iron of Anglo-Saxon syllables,

and the moon, that always catches us by surprise,

and that worse of all bad habits, Buenos Aires,

and the subtle flavor of water, the taste of grapes,

and chocolate, oh Mexican delicacy,

and a few coins and an old hourglass,

and that an evening, like so many others,

be given over to these lines of verse.
