UPON THEIR HUMBLE FARE






La ambrosía de los dioses es muy apropiada
Debería ser una planta sobre la tierra. Como néctar es
El rocío de la mañana con que mojamos nuestros zapatos
Porque los dioses son gente sencilla y nos deberíamos esforzar
Sobre su humilde ración

HDT

(traducción Guillermo Ruiz)

Tis very fit the ambrosia of the gods
Should be a weed on earth. As nectar is
The morning dew with which we wet our shoes
For the gods are simple folks and we should pine
Upon their humble fare

HDT






Even the tired laborers I meet on the road, I really meet as traveling gods (Journal, August 15, 1845) –
