Waking up

Poems from Moral Proverbs and Folk Songs


The eye you see is not
an eye because you see it;
it is an eye because it sees you.


Form your letters slowly and well:
making things well
is more important than making them.


Beyond living and dreaming
there is something more important:
waking up.

Antonio Machado, 'The Winged Energy of Delight', translations by Robert Bly
