    I love the graininess of this. It looks like a shot from the 30s or 40s. I have some like it in our family album. Very nostalgic. Great work.

    SONG OF BEAUTIFUL TRUST (Translation by Sam Abrams)
    by CLEMENTINA ARDERIU (1889 - 1976)
    To my beloved I have given
    all the keys;
    I have all of his,
    so we make peace.
    Yet there is a chamber,
    deep in the back,
    we cannot enter
    not even briefly.
    So many hidden powers,
    so many thoughts
    escape there
    at all times.
    It would be rather useless
    to try to catch a glimpse:
    the uproar would strike you
    harder than a rock.
    Let us be contented with a shadow
    or an echo.
    Let him keep his accounts
    as I do mine.
