Lxi Poem by Miguel de Unamuno


Vuelve hacia atrás la vista, caminante,
verás lo que te queda de camino;
desde el oriente de tu cuna el sino
ilumina tu marcha hacia adelante.

Es del pasado el porvenir semblante;
como se irá la vida así se vino;
cabe volver las riendas del destino
como se vuelve del revés un guante.

Lleva tu espalda reflejado el frente;
sube la niebla por el río arriba
y se resuelve encima de la fuente;

la lanzadera en su vaivén se aviva;
desnacerás un día de repente;
nunca sabrás dónde el misterio estriba.
