“XXIX

Traveler, there is no path.
The path is made by walking.

Traveller, the path is your tracks
And nothing more.
Traveller, there is no path
The path is made by walking.
By walking you make a path
And turning, you look back
At a way you will never tread again
Traveller, there is no road
Only wakes in the sea.”
Antonio Machado, Border of a Dream: Selected Poems
“I thought my fireplace dead
and stirred the ashes.
I burned my fingers.”
Antonio Machado, Border of a Dream: Selected Poems
“Will the spellbound world die with you"

Will the spellbound world die with you
where memory hangs on
to clean breaths in life,
the white shadow of a first love,

a voice that struck your heart, the hand
you wanted to grab in dreams,
and every love
that fell in the soul down to the bottom sky?

Will your world die with you,
the old life you remade in your way?
Have the anvils and crucibles of your soul
been working for dust and wind?”
Antonio Machado, Border of a Dream: Selected Poems
