Juan Ramón Jiménez

A warm and mild haze
hung around the trees;
the moon was going down
in a west of gold and silk
like some full and divine womb …
My chest was thumping
as if my heart were drunk …

—   Juan Ramón Jiménez, from “The Lamb Was Bleating Softly,” Lorca & Jimenez: Selected Poems (Beacon Press, 1997)
