lyrics

La Clepsidra

Daba el reloj las doce… y eran doce
golpes de azada en tierra…

…¡Mi hora! –grité– … El silencio
me respondió: – No temas;
tú no verás caer la última gota
que en la clepsidra tiembla.

Dormirás muchas horas todavía
sobre la orilla vieja,
y encontrarás una mañana pura
amarrada tu barca a otra ribera.

Antonio Machado(1875-1939)

THE CLEPSYDRA

It was chiming twelve
and there were twelve strokes
of the hammer on earth
My hour! I cried
the silence answered me

do not be afraid
you will not see the last drop fall
that trembles in the clepsydra
you will sleep many hours yet
on the old bank
and one pure morning
you will find your boat
tied to a new shore

Antonio Machado
(1875-1939)
