Posts Tagged ‘beehive’

Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that a spring was breaking

out in my heart.

I said: Along which secret aqueduct,

Oh water, are you coming to me,

water of a new life

that I have never drunk?


Last night, as I was sleeping

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that I had a beehive

here inside my heart.

And the golden bees

were making white combs

and sweet honey

from my old failures.


Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that a fiery sun was giving

light inside my heart.

It was fiery because I felt

warmth as from a hearth,

and sun because it gave light

and brought tears to my eyes


Last night, as I was sleeping,

I dreamt–marvelous error!–

that it was God I had

here inside my heart.

~Antonio Machado

(translated by R.B.)
