A petición del respetable, reproduzco aquí la traducción del poema "Ulises" de Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Un poema bellísimo sobre el héroe y el tiempo, que ya usé como cita parcial en La leyenda del Navegante y que es, curiosamente, el favorito del capitán Sheridan de Babylon 5. La traducción es de Randolph D. Pope, lo encontré aquí en la red pero, no sé por qué, desapareció al poco tiempo.


De nada sirve que viva como un rey inútil
junto a este hogar apagado, entre rocas estériles,
el consorte de una anciana, inventando y decidiendo
leyes arbitrarias para un pueblo bárbaro,
que acumula, y duerme, y se alimenta, y no sabe quién soy.
No encuentro descanso al no viajar; quiero beber
la vida hasta las heces. Siempre he gozado
mucho, he sufrido mucho, con quienes
me amaban o en soledad; en la costa y cuando
con veloces corrientes las constelaciones de la lluvia
irritaban el mar oscuro. He llegado a ser famoso;
pues siempre en camino, impulsado por un corazón hambriento,
he visto y conocido mucho: las ciudades de los hombres
y sus costumbres, climas, consejos y gobiernos,
no siendo en ellas ignorado, sino siempre honrado en todas;
y he bebido el placer del combate junto a mis iguales,
allá lejos, en las resonantes llanuras de la lluviosa Troya.
Formo parte de todo lo que he visto;
y, sin embargo, toda experiencia es un arco a través del cual
se vislumbra un mundo ignoto, cuyo horizonte huye
una y otra vez cuando avanzo.
¡Qué fastidio es detenerse, terminar,
oxidarse sin brillo, no resplandecer con el ejercicio!
Como si respirar fuera la vida. Una vida sobre otra
sería del todo insuficiente, y de la única que tengo
me queda poco; pero cada hora me rescata
del silencio eterno, añade algo,
trae algo nuevo; y sería despreciable
guardarme y cuidarme el tiempo de tres soles,
y refrenar este espíritu ya viejo, pero que arde en el deseo
de seguir aprendiendo, como se sigue a una estrella que cae,
más allá del límite más extremo del pensamiento humano.


Éste es mi hijo, mi propio Telémaco,
a quien dejo el cetro y esta isla.
Lo quiero mucho; tiene el criterio para triunfar
en esta labor, para civilizar con prudente paciencia
a un pueblo rudo, y para llevarlos lentamente
a que se sometan a lo que es útil y bueno.
Es del todo impecable, dedicado completamente
a los intereses comunes, y se puede confiar
en que sea compasivo y cumpla los ritos
con que se adora a los dioses tutelares
cuando me haya ido. Él hace lo suyo, yo, lo mío.


Allí está el puerto; el barco extiende sus velas;
allí llama el amplio y oscuro mar. Vosotros, mis marineros,
almas que habéis trabajado y sufrido y pensado junto a mí,
y que siempre tuvisteis una alegre bienvenida
tanto para los truenos como para el día despejado, recibiéndolos
con corazones libres e inteligencias libres, vosotros y yo hemos envejecido.
La ancianidad tiene todavía su honra y su trabajo.
La muerte lo acaba todo: pero algo antes del fin,
alguna labor excelente y notable, todavía puede realizarse,
no indigna de quienes compartieron el campo de batalla con los dioses.
Las estrellas comienzan a brillar sobre las rocas:
el largo día avanza hacia su fin; la lenta luna asciende; los hondos
lamentos son ya de muchas voces. Venid, amigos míos.
No es demasiado tarde para buscar un mundo nuevo.
Zarpemos, y sentados en perfecto orden hiramos
los resonantes survos, pues me propongo
navegar más allá del poniente y el lugar en que se bañan
todos los astros del occidente, hasta que muera.
Es posible que las corrientes nos hundan y destruyan;
es posible que demos con las Islas Venturosas,
y veamos al gran Aquiles, a quien conocimos.
A pesar de que mucho se ha perdido, queda mucho; y, a pesar
de que no tenemos ahora el vigor que antaño
movía la tierra y los cielos, lo que somos, somos:
un espíritu ecuánime de corazones heroicos,
debilitados por el tiempo y el destino, pero con una voluntad decidida
a combatir, buscar, encontrar y no ceder.
