Cava lixeiro, cava,
xigante pensamento;
cava un fondo burato onde a memoria
do pasado enterremos.
¡Á terra cos defuntos!
¡Cava, cava lixeiro!
E por lousa daraslle o negro olvido
i a nada lle darás por simiterio.

Portuguese.png Portuguese translation

Cava ligeiro, cava,
gigante pensamento;
cava um fundo buraco onde a memória
do passado enterremos.
À terra c'os defuntos!
Cava, cava ligeiro!
E por lápide, darás-lhe o negro esquecimento
e a nada lhe darás por cemitério.

Dig fast, dig,
oh giant thought;
dig a deep hole where the memory
of the past let us bury.
To the ground with the cadavers!
Dig, dig fast!
And for gravestone, you shall give to it dark forgetting
and nothing shall you give to it for cemetery.
