A Time Problem


Mañana is not Tomorrow,
And Tomorrow is not Today.
The Time that we all borrow,
Is Never here to stay.

    well, i saw your comment(s) at elena plotkin's banana(s) poem, and i could not resist taking a peek at you.
    i was never a good spanish student (50 years ago) , but i THOUGHT manana meant tomorrow, AND at one site one of its definitions IS tomorrow. but i also found this definition:

    ma·ña·na

    m?n'yän?/
    adverb
    adverb: mañana

    1.
    in the indefinite future (used to indicate procrastination) .
    the exhibition will be ready mañana

    Origin
    More
    Spanish, literally ‘tomorrow.’
    Translate manana to
    Use over time for: manana


    SO I GUESS I WON'T make you change your poem! ;) bri (Report) Reply

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
