Another poem by Rubén Darío (Spanish text) : ____________________________________ MEDALLONES - III WALT WHITMAN En su país de hierro vive el gran viejo, bello como un patriarca, sereno y santo. Tiene en la arruga olímpica de su entrecejo algo que impera y vence con noble encanto. Su alma del infinito parece espejo; son sus cansados hombros dignos del manto; y con arpa labrada de un roble añejo como un profeta nuevo canta su canto. Sacerdote, que alienta soplo divino, anuncia en el futuro, tiempo mejor. Dice el águila: «¡Vuela! », «¡Boga! », al marino, y «¡Trabaja! », al robusto trabajador. ¡Así va ese poeta por su camino con su soberbio rostro de emperador!
