Treasure Island

Antonio Machado

(26 July 1875 – 22 February 1939 / Seville)

Songs of the High Country


Soria, in blue mountains,
on the fields of violet,
how often I’ve dreamed of you
on the plain of flowers,
where the Guadalquiviŕ runs
past golden orange-trees
to the sea.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
