Confusion of land

By Octavio Paz, Trans. Muriel Rukeyser

At daybreak go looking for your newborn name
Over the thrones of sleep glittering the light
Gallops across all mountains to the sea
The sun with his spurs on is entering the waves
Stony attack breaking the clarities
The sea resists rearing to the horizon
Confusion of land approaching the state of sculpture
The naked forehead of the world is raised
Rock smoothed and polished to cut a poem on
Display of light that opens its fan of names
Here is the seed of a singing like a tree
Here are the wind and names beautiful in the wind
