Rosalia de Castro, Galician poet and author, 1837 -1885




rosalia

 

 

i am a prisoner

of my time and culture

 

it will not change

not in my lifetime

 

nor ten more

so i wear black

 

and obey

and birth

 

and harbor thoughts

to match my attire

 

and love

though his love

 

is spurious

and base
