Everness – Borges

Everness

Por Jorge Luis Borges

Sólo una cosa no hay. Es el olvido
Dios que salva el metal salva escoria
y cifra en Su profética memoria
las lunas que serán y las que han sido.

Ya todo esta. Los miles de reflejos
que entre los dos crepúsculos del día
tu rostro fue dejando en los espejos
y los que ira dejando todavía.

y todo es una parte del diverso
cristal de esa memoria, el universo;
no tienen fin sus arduos corredores

y las puertas se cierra tu paso;
sólo del otro lado del ocaso
verás los Arquetipos y Esplendores.

música de fondo, tango “Recuerdo” de Osvaldo Pugliese por el Sexteto de Julio de Caro, grabación de 1926

Everness

One thing does not exist: Oblivion.
God saves the metal and he saves the dross,
And his prophetic memory guards from loss
The moons to come, and those of evenings gone.
Everything is: the shadows in the glass
Which, in between the day’s two twilights, you
Have scattered by the thousands, or shall strew
Henceforward in the mirrors that you pass.
And everything is part of that diverse
Crystalline memory, the universe;
Whoever through its endless mazes wanders
Hears door on door click shut behind his stride,
And only from the sunset’s farther side
Shall view at last the Archetypes and the Splendors.

  1. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

  2. ¡Increíble que lo hayan transcrito sin acentos! Se pierde mucha de la belleza.
