A poem by António Machado

I love Jesus, who said to us:
heaven and earth will pass away.
When heaven and earth have passed away,
my word will still remain.
What was your word, Jesus?
Love? Forgiveness? Affection?
All your words were
one word: Wakeup.

Antonio Machado

(Translated by Robert Bly, in
The Soul Is Here For Its Own Joy)
