I Know Not What I Seek Eternally.
I know not what I seek eternally
by Rosalia de Castro
on earth, in air, and sky;
I know not what I seek; but it is something
that I have lost, I know not when,
and cannot find, although in dreams invisibly
it dwells in all I touch and see.
Ah bliss! Never can I recapture you
either on earth, in air, or sky,
although I know you have reality
and are no futile dream.
Translated Muriel Kittel.
