Poet’s Epitaph
Octavio PAZ Lozano (1914– 1998)

He tried to sing, singing
not to remember
his true life of lies
and to remember
his lying life of truths.

Epitaful Poetului
Octavio PAZ Lozano (1914– 1998)

A început să cânte, un cântec
ca să uite
adevărata sa viaţă de minciuni
şi să- şi aduc-aminte
minciunile adevăratei sale vieţi.
