The Immortal Iberians
Viriathus, Seneca, El Cid, Diaz, John The Perfect,
St John of the Cross, St Teresa with her ecstasies!...
Their luminous greatness and their sublime asceticism
Make us, with our souls of ancient knights, shiver!
Translated from the French of Athanase Vantchev de Thracy by Norton Hodges
