Octavio Paz: “Aquí / Here”

AQUÍ

Mis pasos en esta calle
Resuenan
En otra calle
Donde
Oigo mis passos
Pasar en esta calle
Donde

Sólo es real la niebla

Octavio Paz

HERE
My footsteps in this street
Re-echo
In another street
Where
I hear my footsteps
Passing in this street
Where

Nothing is real but the fog
