  • Caminante, son tus huellas
    el camino, y nada más;
    caminante, no hay camino,
    se hace camino al andar.
    Al andar se hace camino,
    y al volver la vista atrás
    se ve la senda que nunca
    se ha de volver a pisar.
    Caminante, no hay camino,
    sino estelas en la mar.
    • Wanderer, your footsteps are
      the road, and nothing else;
      wanderer, there is no road,
      the road is made by walking.
      Walking makes the road,
      and on glancing behind
      one sees the path
      that he will never trod again.
      Wanderer, there is no road—
      Just foam in the sea.
