Letanía / Litany (for Lan)

As the pomegranate renders fruit in one’s hand,
may these verses I give please you!
You delight me as air delights the lung.
As the Spring earth gladdens the plant’s root
you give me joy, my lovely one!
I exult in you like the bird in the breeze.
As the dolphin is happy in the sea
I rejoice in you, dear love!
