Ajedrez

Tenue rey, sesgo alfil, encarnizada
reina, torre directa y peon ladino.
Sobre lo negro y blanco del camino
buscan y libran su batalla armada.

No saben que la mano senialada
del jugador gobierna su destino,
no saben que un rigor adamantino
sujeta su albedrio y su jornada.

Tambien el jugador es prisionero
(la sentencia es de Omar) de otro tablero
de negras noches y blancos dias.

Dios mueve al jugador, y este la pieza.
Que dios detras de Dios la trama empieza
de polvo y tiempo y suenio y agonias?

Chess

Tenuous king, Slanty bishop, vengeful
queen, direct rook and crafty pawn.
Over the black and white terrain
they seek and engage in bloody battle.

They don't realize that the controlling hand
of the player rules their destiny.
They ignore the adamantine fate
that governs their choices and their journey.

The player, too, is captive
(the sentence is Omar's) of another board
of dark nights and clear days.

God moves the player, and he the pieces.
But which god behind God begins the round
of dust and time, of dreams and agonies?

Jorge Luis Borges
