The Ancient Elemental Things

Jorge Luis Borges, The Encounter (El Encuentro, tr. Andrew Hurley):
There, I sensed, were the ancient elemental things: the smell of the meat as it turned golden on the spit, the trees, the dogs, the fire that brings men together.

Ahí estaban, sentí, las antiguas cosas elementales: el olor de la carne que se dora, los árboles, los perros, las ramas secas, el fuego que reúne a los hombres.
Albert Bierstadt, The Oregon Trail
