Midnight dreams


Anoche, estando solo y ya medio dormido,
mis sueños de otras épocas se me han aparecido.

Los sueños de esperanzas, de glorias, de alegrías
y de felicidades que nunca han sido mías,

se fueron acercando en lentas procesiones
y de la alcoba oscura poblaron los rincones

hubo un silencio grave en todo el aposento
y en el reloj la péndola detúvose al momento.

La fragancia indecisa de un olor olvidado,
llegó como un fantasma y me habló del pasado.

Vi caras que la tumba desde hace tiempo esconde,
y oí voces oídas ya no recuerdo dónde.

Los sueños se acercaron y me vieron dormido,
se fueron alejando, sin hacerme ruido

y sin pisar los hilos sedosos de la alfombra
y fueron deshaciéndose y hundiéndose en la sombra.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
