Short Beard

Beard of style, beard of grace,
beard that grows under my face.
I went to the barber and asked him,
“Please give my beard a handsome trim.”
He sharpened his scissors, and I’m sad to report
that he cut my beard way too short.
I was mad
and at the same time, I was sad.

 

Barba corta

Barba de estilo, la barba de la gracia,
la barba que crece debajo de mi cara.
Fui al barbero y le dije:
“Por favor, mi barba necesita un buen recorte.”
Él afiló sus tijeras, y me da lastima de informarles
que me cortó la barba demasiado corto.
Me enoje y a la misma vez me entristeci.
