    (…) Cuentan que Ulises, harto de prodigios,
    lloró de amor al divisar su Itaca
    verde y humilde. El arte es esa Itaca
    de verde eternidad, no de prodigios.

    (…) They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
    wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
    humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
    a green eternity, not wonders.
