One of my wishes is that those dark trees,

So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as ’twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto th eedge of doom.

I should not be withheld but that some day
into their vastness I should steal away,
Fearless of ever finding open land,
or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

I do not see why I should e’er turn back,
Or those should not set forth upon my track
To overtake me, who should miss me here
And long to know if still I held them dear.

They would not find me changed from him the knew,
Only more sure of all I though was true.

Into my own by Robert Frost

Uno de mis deseos es que aquellos árboles oscuros,

Tan viejos y firmes que la brisa apenas los penetra,
No fuesen la máscara de una penumbra discreta,
Estiradas sombras, lejos al borde del destino.

No he de ser retenido, pero en ese algún día,
En su inmensidad debería escabullirme,
Intrépido, buscando incesante la tierra abierta,
O el sendero donde la rueda lenta vierte arena.

No veo por qué yo debería volver,
O por qué los otros mis pasos deben rastrear
Para alcanzarme, pues deberían extrañarme,
Sabiendo largo tiempo que todavía los amo.

No me encontrarían distinto del que supieron contemplar,
Sólo más seguro de que aquello que pensaba era verdad.

Hacia mi mismo de Robert Frost

  1. ” The lights from the parlour and kitchen shone out

    Through the blinds and the windows and bars;

    And high overhead and all moving about,

    There were thousands of millions of stars.

    There ne’er were such thousands of leaves on a tree,

    Nor of people in church or the Park,

    As the crowds of the stars that looked down upon me,

    And that glittered and winked in the dark.”
