El novio de la muerte*


Nadie en el Tercio sabía
quien era aquel legionario
tan audaz y temerario
que a la Legión se alistó.
 
Nadie sabía su historia,
más la Legión suponía
que un gran dolor le mordía
como un lobo, el corazón.
 
Más si alguno quien era le preguntaba
con dolor y rudeza le contestaba:
 
Soy un hombre a quien la suerte
hirió con zarpa de fiera;
soy un novio de la muerte
que va a unirse en lazo fuerte
con tal leal compañera.
 
Cuando más rudo era el fuego
y la pelea más fiera,
defendiendo su Bandera
el legionario avanzó.
 
Y sin temer al empuje
del enemigo exaltado,
supo morir como un bravo
y la enseña rescató.
 
Y al regar con su sangre la tierra ardiente,
murmuró el legionario con voz doliente:
 
Soy un hombre a quien la suerte
hirió con zarpa de fiera;
soy un novio de la muerte
que va a unirse en lazo fuerte
con tal leal compañera.
 
Cuando al fin le recogieron,
entre su pecho encontraron
una carta y un retrato
de una divina mujer.
 
Y aquella carta decía:
"...si algún día Dios te llama,
para mí un puesto reclama
que a buscarte pronto iré".
 
Y en el último beso que le enviaba
su postrer despedida le consagraba.



Death's Bridegroom


No one in the Regiment knew
Who was that Legionary
So bold and daring
That he came to join the Legion.
 
No one knew his story,
Yet the Legion knew
That a great pain gnawed
Like a wolf, at his heart.
 
Yet if anyone asked who he was
He would reply reluctantly and sternly:
 
I am a man whom fortune
Struck with a beast's paw;
I am death's bridegroom
Who is to be joined in a strong bond
With such a faithful sweetheart.
 
When the fire and fighting
Were at their fiercest,
Defending his Flag
The legionary advanced.
 
And without fearing the onslaught
Of the exalted enemy
He died bravely
And rescued the ensign.
 
And as he soaked the burning ground with his blood,
The legionary murmured in a mournful voice:
 
I am a man whom fortune
Struck with a beast's paw;
I am death's bridegroom
Who is to be joined in a strong bond
With such a faithful sweetheart.
 
When his body was finally recovered
They found on his chest
A letter and a picture
Of a beautiful woman.
 
And that letter read:
"... if one day God calls you,
Save a place for me
I will soon find you."
 
And in the last kiss that she sent him
She bid him a final goodbye.
 
Just to be by your side
My most faithful sweetheart,
I became death's bridegroom,
I am now bound to her with a strong bond
And her love was my Flag*.
