Nel Mezzo del Cammin

Nel mezzo del cammin


Nel mezzo del cammin, originally uploaded by JoseAngelGarciaLanda.
"Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita / mi ritrovai per una selva oscura / ché la diritta via era smarrita." Ya ha pasado media vida desde que me leí la Divina Comedia. Hoy me encuentro con este poema de Longfellow, a quien también leyó Leonard Cohen:

Mezzo Cammin

Half my life is gone, and I have let
    The years slip from me and have not fulfilled
    The aspiration of my youth, to build
   Some tower of song with lofty parapet.
Not indolence, nor pleasure, nor the fret
   Of restless passions that would not be stilled,
   But sorrow, and a care that almost killed,
   Kept me from what I may accomplish yet;
Though, half-way up the hill, I see the Past
   Lying beneath me with its sounds and sights,--
   A city in the twilight dim and vast,
With smoking roofs, soft bells, and gleaming lights,--
   And hear above me on the autumnal blast
   The cataract of Death far thundering from the heights.
