A CUANTOS AMAN LA AZUL LEJANÍA
A cuantos aman la azul lejanía:
los que desde el alba a la noche, buscando
fugitivos rincones camináis
sin desalentaros en la vana búsqueda;
los que río cantarín abajo,
zagual en mano, joviales remáis
salpicando al sargo saltarín
o fondeáis en la raíz del sauce;
 los que, más osados, de la fangosa ribera
zarpáis, llevando aquel arca de cedro
entre aves marinas y el rugido
del mar inmenso, tan profundo y tan claro;
o los que, en fin, marcháis adonde vuestro corazón
os lleva
sin importaros otra cosa, y oís,
sentados junto al fuego del hogar,
ruido de pasos en Utah o Pamere:
aunque largo el camino y duros sean
el sol y la lluvia, el rocío y el polvo,
aunque en la desesperación y el ansia del camino
enterrados queden los mayores, y extravíense los hijos
al final, oh amigos, estad seguros
de que suceda lo que suceda, allá en el horizonte,
en el confín de los confines,
veréis aparecer la ciudad dorada.
