Un día

La Ría

quizá esculpa un círculo

al arroyo de que fluyó.

En este momento quiere desembocarse

en el océano.

One day

The River

may sculpt a circle

to the stream from which she flowed.

For now, she seeks to flow

into the ocean.

*La poeta añadió (-se) al verbo 'desembocar' personificar La Ría.

*In Spanish, 'the river' is usually masculine, but I changed it to feminine as I did La Cuerpa (The Body) in In The Tomb . It is more difficult to feminize nouns in English without adding too many undesired words.
