Memoria, ven a mí,
Y entona alegres notas;
Y mientras en el viento
Tu alegre canto flota,
Medito en la ribera,
Donde sueñan amantes
Que suspiran
Y pescan fantasías
En el espejo de aguas.
Beberé en este arroyo
Y cantará el jilguero;
He de yacer soñando
Durante todo un día;
Al caer de la noche
Iré a esos lugares
Donde habitan las penas,
Y por valles oscuros
Seguiré caminando
Con todo este silencio
De mi melancolía.
(p. 29-31)
Canción de Esbozos poéticos, William Blake
