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.

    This guy pulled me out of my urban cubbyhole. I've always admired nature poets but could never identify or stick with them very long. Machado changed my perception of all that with only a few poems. Mary Oliver's recommendations never fail. EVERYONE should give this guy a shot. (Report) Reply

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
