Amor Eterno (Eternal Love)

By Gustavo Adolfo Becquer

Podrá nublarse el sol eternamente;
Podrá secarse en un instante el mar;
Podrá romperse el eje de la tierra
Como un débil cristal.
¡todo sucederá! Podrá la muerte
Cubrirme con su fúnebre crespón;
Pero jamás en mí podrá apagarse
La llama de tu amor.

What I love about this poem (no pun intended) is that it has some rich imagery. From images of a darkening sun to images of the ground splitting, there could be some interested shots that would translate well into film. With the style of stop-motion some of these shots would be very interesting, like shots of crystals breaking and of a drying sea. Overall, the message of the poem also captivates me as it is about how nothing can stop this man’s (Gustavo’s) love for someone no matter how much his life or the world around him changes he will always have this intense love that will come on top from all and everything else.
