"Begirt with many a blazing star ... "

"Begirt with many a blazing a star ... " - The Occultation of Orion by H. W. Longfellow

Ojitos, salpicaduras
de lágrimas o rocío,
cuando tembláis allá arriba,
¿es de frío?

Sorry Martina, is only a passage of poem dedicate to stars by Gabriela Mistral.

Martina said...

Augen, Funken
von Tränen oder Tau,
wenn ihr da oben zittert,
ist euch kalt?

my first try with a translation.

very nice lines.

The poem refers to the apparent twinkle of the stars. Therefore it asks: They are twinkling of cold over there?
In any case: Gute Übersetzung zu Deutsch!
