Treasure Island

Antonio Machado

(26 July 1875 – 22 February 1939 / Seville)

Yo Voy Soñando Caminos


Yo voy soñando caminos
de la tarde. ¡Las colinas
doradas, los verdes pinos,
las polvorientas encinas!…
¿Adónde el camino irá?
Yo voy cantando, viajero
a lo largo del sendero…
-La tarde cayendo está-.
'En el corazón tenía
la espina de una pasión;
logré arrancármela un día;
ya no siento el corazón.'

Y todo el campo un momento
se queda, mudo y sombrío,
meditando. Suena el viento
en los álamos del río.
La tarde más se oscurece;
y el camino que serpea
y débilmente blanquea,
se enturbia y desaparece.

Mi cantar vuelve a plañir;
'Aguda espina dorada,
quién te pudiera sentir
en el corazón clavada.'
