from Proverbs and Tiny Songs 6 by Antonio Machado

Leonard Durso

You walking, your footprints are
the road, and nothing else;
there is no road, walker,
you made the road by walking.
By walking you make the road,
and when you look backward,
you see the path that you
never will step on again.
Walker, there is no road,
only wind-trails in the sea.

translated by Robert Bly
