Rima XXXV

“¡No me admiró tu olvido! Aunque de un día,
me admiró tu cariño mucho más;
porque lo que hay en mí que vale algo,
eso… ni lo pudiste sospechar.”

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, “Rima XXXV”

“I’m not amazed at thy forgetfulness.
I marvelled much more, that thou couldst profess
Affection for me, even for a day;
For, that there is a latent quality
In me, which challenges the world’s respect,
—Thy inexperience could not detect.”
