It must be nice to have a long name / by mrm

And on March 19th, we have the pleasure of meeting Peruvian educator and poet Lucila de María del Perpetuo Socorro Godoy Alcayaga, better known by her pseudonym, Gabriela Mistral. Poetry in translation is a damn difficult thing. Nonetheless, I'd like to recommend the following:
To See Him Again 
Never, never again?
Not on nights filled with quivering stars,
or during dawn's maiden brightness
or afternoons of sacrifice?

Or at the edge of a pale path
that encircles the farmlands,
or upon the rim of a trembling fountain,
whitened by a shimmering moon?

Or beneath the forest's
luxuriant, raveled tresses
where, calling his name,
I was overtaken by the night?
Not in the grotto that returns
the echo of my cry?

Oh no. To see him again --
it would not matter where --
in heaven's deadwater
or inside the boiling vortex,
under serene moons or in bloodless fright!

To be with him...
every springtime and winter,
united in one anguished knot
around his bloody neck!

And she was keen on education reform! And the first Latin American person to win the Nobel Prize in Literature (1945)! Enthusiasm, please and thank you.
