Juan Ramón Jiménez: “Big Moon”

Big Moon

The door is open,
the cricket is singing.
Are you going around naked
in the countryside?

Like ceaseless water,
flowing in and out of everything.
Are you going around naked
in the air?

The basil is not sleeping,
the ant is hard at work.
Are you going around naked
in our house?

Juan Ramón Jiménez
