Poem: "Poetry"

Man with umbrella squats against a black background


Still studying Spanish A1.2, but thought I'd work on my Spanish by translating today's poem into la castellano.



Poetry


It’s just a black umbrella
bought some time ago
from a fella outside the subway

but its broken spokes
tinkle
like a wind chime

against pelting rain and roaring drains.



Poesia


No es más que un paragua negro
compré hace bastante tiempo
de un tipo a la entrada del subte

pero sus rotos radios
tintinean
como un carillón de viento

en contra de lluvia impacto y alcantarilla clamoroso.
