Éxtasis


Cada rosa gentil ayer nacida,
cada aurora que apunta entre sonrojos,
dejan mi alma en el éxtasis sumida
nunca se cansan de mirar mis ojos
¡el perpetuo milagro de la vida!

Años ha que contemplo las estrellas
en las diáfanas noches españolas
y las encuentro cada vez mas bellas.
Años ha que en el mar conmigo a solas,
¡y aun me pasma el prodigio de las olas!

Cada vez hallo la naturaleza
mas sobrenatural, mas pura y santa,
Para mi, en rededor, todo es belleza:
y con la misma plenitud me encanta
la boca de la madre cuando reza
que la boca del niño cuando canta.

Quiero ser inmortal con sed intensa,
porque es maravilloso el panorama
con que nos brinda la creación inmensa;
porque cada lucero me reclama,
diciéndome al brillar: 'Aquí se piensa,
también aquí se lucha, aquí se ama.'

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
