Yo he visto mi alma en sueños…
En el etéreo espacio
donde los mundos giran,
un astro loco, un raudo,
cometa con los rojos
cabellos incendiados…
Yo he visto mi alma en sueños,
cual río plateado,
de rizas ondas lentas
que fluyen dormitando…
Yo he visto mi alma en sueños,
como un estrecho y largo
corredor tenebroso,
de fondo iluminado…
Acaso mi alma tenga
risueña luz de campo,
y sus aromas lleguen
de allá, del fondo claro…
Yo he visto mi alma en sueños…
Era un desierto llano
y un árbol seco y roto
hacia el camino blanco.


Translation

I have seen my soul in dreams…
In the ethereal space
where worlds spin,
a demented star, an impetuous
comet with its red
tail of fire…
I have seen my soul in dreams
like a silvery river
with rippling waves
that flow sleepily…
I have seen my soul in dreams
like a long and narrow
dimly lit corridor
with an illuminated foundation…
Perhaps my soul has
the cheerful light of the countryside,
and its aromas come
from there, from the glowing foundation…
I have seen my soul in dreams…
It was a deserted plain
and a dry and broken tree
along the white path

~ Antonio Machado
