35 Sonnets by Fernando Pessoa
Edition 1, (November 30, 2006)
We are our dreams of ourselves. Appearance even as appearance lies. However much we give our thoughts the will To be our soul and gesture it abroad. Unto our very selves we are abridged When we would utter to our thought our being. flesh and life might prove but a gross screen.I. Haply Truth's body is no eyable being. And each to each other dreams of others' dreams. If that apparent part of life's delight Our tingled flesh-sense circumscribes were seen By aught save reflex and co-carnal sight. souls by gleams. The abyss from soul to soul cannot be bridged By any skill of thought or trick of seeming. Whether we write or speak or do but look We are ever unapparent. . Our hearts are incommunicable still. What we are Cannot be transfused into word or book. In what we show ourselves we are ignored. II. Our soul from us is infinitely far. Joy.
Thankful to some idea of my being That doth not even my with gone true soul rime.  III. Whence taketh me A qualm-like ache of life. dark. All is either the irrational world we see Or some aught-else whose being-unknown doth rot Its use for our thought's use. That makes this thus. vague. That future eyes more clearly shall feel me In this inked page than in my direct soul. An anger at the essence of the world. Wherefrom what comes to thought's sense of life? Nought. And I become the mere sense of a rage That lacks the very words whose waste might 'suage. When I do think my meanest line shall be More in Time's use than my creating whole. Takes my soul by the throat and makes it hurled In nightly horrors of despaired surmise. or thinkable this wise. warm sense of seeing Is the choked vision of blindfolded eyes.2 35 Sonnets Haply our close. a body-deep Soul-hate of what we seek and what we weep. When I conjecture put to make me seeing Good readers of me in some aftertime. .
Nay.3 IV. Framing the stone to age where was thy name. nor what to be Towards thy fate's material secrecy. I knew not how to feel. with casual flaw. Yet such thou wert. And the encroaching grass. thy kiss's readiness. I could not think of thee as piecèd rot. and saw The natural flowers ignoring thee sans blame. . for thou hadst been long dead.  V. Yet thou liv'dst entire in my seeing thought And what thou wert in me had never fled. And memory had taught my heart the duty To know thee ever at that deathlessness. I had fixed the moments of thy beauty-Thy ebbing smile. But when I came where thou wert laid.
. Estranged by consciousness from sentiment. badly o'er-book-skilled. Courting in alien speech the Muse's pleasure. each day flesh-driven By his own act to forfeit his wished heaven. Like a true-Christian sinner. like a clock. Lacking the subtler music in his measure. Doth overflow his purpose with made heat. 35 Sonnets VI. And. harshly poet turned. With a thought feeling forced to be sedate Even when the feeling's nature is violent. Or as a prose-wit. winds with withoutness willed What should have been an inner instinct's feat. As a bad orator. I study how to love or how to hate. With useless care labours but to be spurned. or edge my thoughts to action. When the miserly press of each day's need Aches to a narrowness of spilled distraction My soul appalled at the world's work's time-greed? How can I pause my thoughts upon the task My soul was born to think that it must do When every moment has a thought to ask To fit the immediate craving of its cue? The coin I'd heap for marrying my Muse And build our home i'th' greater Time-to-be Becomes dissolved by needs of each day's use And I feel beggared of infinity.4 How can I think.
. Or with its stuffed garb forge an otherworld Without itself its dead deceit discovering. that scarce grieve thee-That entire death shall null my entire thought. Thy words are torture to me. So. dismay. Shall that of me that now contains the stars Be by the very contained stars survived? Thus were Fate all unjust. self-known no truer. as far as ever. not that I believe thee.  VII. But that I cannot disbelieve thee not. all being possible. an idle thought may Less idle thoughts. Yet what truth bars An all unjust Fate's truth from being believed? Conjecture cannot fit to the seen world A garment of its thought untorn or covering.5 As who would learn to swim without the river. And I feel torture. When nearest to the trick.
Whatever consciousness begins the task The task's accepted use to sleepness ties. that children are. Our souls. Itself goes not unmasked to the unmasking.  IX. being thought-losing. . when a thought would unmask our soul's masking. And. and undermasks. Knows it the last mask off and the face plain? The true mask feels no inside to the mask But looks out of the mask by co-masked eyes. How many masks wear we. If for self-sport the soul itself unmasks.6 35 Sonnets VIII. Like a child frighted by its mirrored faces. and when. Foist otherness upon their seen grimaces And get a whole world on their forgot causing. Upon our countenance of soul.
Hence live I the dead life each day doth bring. X. Not-acting coils the thought with raged despair. Like a fierce beast self-penned in a bait-lair. in the false stress Of purposed action never set to be. 'twas that it cared but for The present sleepy use of promised joy. For did it care for sense. to take The promise in the meting of its measure? So. Though but more slowly useless. Repurposed for next day's repurposing. we've no power. And it slept rather for my words made sleep Than from a thought of what their sense did say. I talked my heart asleep With empty promise of the coming day. . The struggle avails not. Thanking the fruit but for the forecome flower Which the less active senses best enjoy. And acting rage doth paint despair distraction. As to a child.7 Oh to be idle loving idleness! But I am idle all in hate of me. Ever in action's dream. My will to act binds with excess my action. would it not wake And question closer to the morrow's pleasure? Would it not edge nearer my words. Each gesture to deliver sinks the more. if it slept. and to raise no hand. Like someone sinking in a treacherous sand.
as the storm drives from the storm. 35 Sonnets  XI. By its own trials our soul is surer made. The very things that make the voyage worse Do make it better.8 Thus with deceit do I detain the heart Of which deceit's self knows itself a part. . If we reap knowledge to cross-profit. And the storm's very might shall mate our will. our heart Within the peril disimperilled grows. And. A port is near the more from port we part-The port whereto our driven direction goes. this From storms we learn. its peril is its aid. when the storm's height doth drive-That the black presence of its violence is The pushing promise of near far blue skies. Like to a ship that storms urge on its course. Learn we but how to have the pilot-skill.
9 XII. And the cold terror moves to him more near Of something that from nothing casts a spell. to fright more is not there. That. As the lone. And's only visible when invisible So I upon the world turn round in thought. . And nothing viewing do no courage take. To that felt corporate emptiness forsake. from no seen cause got. And draw my sense of mystery's horror from Seeing no mystery's mystery alone.  XIII. Yet on his fear's sense keepeth still the load Of that brink-nothing he doth but suspect. But my more terror. when he moves. frighted user of a night-road Suddenly turns round. nothing to detect.
It makes less. And. We are born at sunset and we die ere morn. though their eyes look through night's complete mask. Yet wonder not: this is the poet's soul.10 When I should be asleep to mine own voice In telling thee how much thy love's my dream. for it makes it less itself. Yet they speak not the features of the day. were all My self my love and no thought love to prove. I could not tell thee well of how I love. to darkness born. And the whole darkness of the world we know. The obscure consequence of absent glow? Only the stars do teach us light. Loved I not less by knowing it. What consciousness makes more by consciousness. How can we guess its truth. Poet's love's this (as in these words I prove thee): I love my love for thee more than I love thee. Why should these small denials of the whole More than the black whole the pleased eyes attract? Why what it calls «worth» does the captive soul Add to the small and from the large detract? . the noise Of my words othered in my hearing them. I find me listening to myself. 35 Sonnets XIV. My sense of love could not my love rich-dress Did it not for it spend love's own love-pelf. We grasp Their scattered smallnesses with thoughts that stray.
fears to put proof to proof. and. hopes. To what thoughts shall't in alien hearts give birth. fears. lest the real thing scoff. I daily live. And in his mind for possible proofs gropes. as he who doth love.  XV. Who with feared longing half would know. .11 So. Like a bad suitor desperate and trembling From the mixed sense of being not loved and loving. at the worth This verse may have and wonder. i'th' fame I dream to see. hoping. Yet perplexed into looking. of my book. loving. Delaying the true proof. A nightly thought of day we darkly reach. Yet. But. dissembling With what he'd wish proved what he fears soon proving. I look with inner eyes afraid to look. But by my thought of others' thought of me. put of light's love wishing it night's stretch.
Yet the more thought we take to thought to prove It must not think. Alas! All this is useless.  XVII. By mere reflecting solid life destroying. for joy's in Enjoying. since its being-past galled. not in thinking of enjoying. Its mere thought-mirroring gainst itself doth sin. We never joy enjoy to that full point Regret doth wish joy had enjoyèd been. recalled. Yet joy was joy when it enjoyèd was And after-enjoyed when as joy recalled. doth further from joy move. but its mien. joy still.12 35 Sonnets XVI. It must have been joy ere its joy did pass And. . Nor have the strength regret to disappoint Recalling not past joy's thought.
The thinker of these thoughts. The stream of time. God's Absence and no more. this Is true--that truer is Love than either lover. Why should it not be possible to Truth? XVIII.13 My love. In one black mystery two void mysteries blends. And if 'tis possible to Thought to bear this fruit. Hollows in real Consciousness and Thought. are not Mere Intervals. My love for thee loves itself more than thee. and not I. The gulf of silence. This thought therefore comes lightly to Doubt's door-If we. And makes me live that it may feed on me. empty even of nought. Holding up to my thinking my thing-hand And looking at it with thought-alien eyes. is the egoist. So in our world. Ay. in whom it doth exist. . seeing substance of this world. Indefinite space. by co-substance night. all of Relation. whose innumerable light Repeats one mystery till conjecture ends. which the outed owner troubles Because the string's lost and the plan forgot: When I think on this and that here I stand. Thought's high-walled maze. known by birth-bursting bubbles. In the country of bridges the bridge is More real than the shores it doth unsever. which. more than me. emptily wise. The stray stars.
So the seen couple's togetherness shall bear Truth to the beauty each in the other sought. Obtained. Let he but friend be who the soul finds fair. like a slave that for kings' robes doth long. Beauty and love let no one separate. Whom exact Nature did to each other fit. But let none love outside the body's thought. shall with mere wearing do them wrong.14 The prayer of my wonder looketh past The universal darkness lone and vast. Therefore thy beauty I sing and wish not thee. I could but love thee out of mockery Of love and thee and mine own ugliness. Thanking the Gods I long not out of place. 35 Sonnets  XIX. . Giving to Beauty love as finishing fate And to Love beauty as true colour of it. Lest.
When in the widening circle of rebirth To a new flesh my travelled soul shall come. Though by blind feeling. . what sweetness will't not be. to remember thee!  XXI.15 XX. Of more age than my days in this pretence? Shall I again regret strange faces lost Of which the present memory is forgot And but in unseen bulks of vagueness tossed Out of the closed sea and black night of Thought? Were thy face one. That some small breath of foiled remembrance yields. Shall I revisit these same differing fields And cull the old new flowers with the same sense. And try again the unremembered earth With the old sadness for the immortal home.
Whate'er its sense may mean. My soul is a stiff pageant. Found in some tomb whose rite no guess can scan. I lose The sense I had of seeing it. but Thought knows what is seeing. So the untouching memory of touch is fitted With sense of a sense whereby far things are shown So. except from guessed sight. nor hath my memory a use . Where all things else to coloured dust did moulder. But when I ask what means that pageant I And would look at it suddenly. its age is twin To that of priesthoods whose feet stood near God. self-uncontented. man by man.16 35 Sonnets Thought was born blind. Of some Egyptian art than Egypt older. Stands yet in memory real and outward known. XXII. Still suggests form as aught whose proper being Mere finding touch with erring darkness drapes. by touch of untouching. deciphering forms from shapes. When knowledge was so great that 'twas a sin And man's mere soul too man for its abode. Yet whence. reach For some truer sense's whole intelligence? The thing once touched. if touch be now omitted. does touch teach That touch is but a close and empty sense? How does mere touch. nor can try Again to look. wrongly aright. Touch' thought of seeing sees not things but Sight. Its careful touch.
And yet the very day they wrong truth by Is of the unseen sun's effluent essence.  XXIII. And absent god. Even as upon a low and cloud-domed day. Is still the absent god by essence' right. save that it recalls An emptiness of having seen those walls.17 That seems recalling. The withdrawn cause by being withdrawn doth get (Being thereby cause still) the denied effect. becoming present devil. The very thought of absence comes from presence: Even so deem we through Good of what is evil. He speaks of light that speaks of absent light. The very words do give themselves the lie. When clouds are one cloud till the horizon. . Our thinking senses deem the sun away And say «'tis sunless» and «there is no sun».
mute and vast. I drag this past That saw the Possible like a dawn grow pale On the lost night before it.18 35 Sonnets XXIV. It dates remoter than God's birth can reach. For it hath communed with an absolute day. But that 't has meaning's all its meaning shows. local day on its wont jars. So the world's to me as. Our yellow. . That had no birth but the world's coming after. as a worn robe's heard trail That I have never seen. after whispered speech.  XXV. That 't has a meaning my conjecture knows. Something in me was born before the stars And saw the sun begin from far away. The cause-ignored sudden echoing of laughter. Through my Thought's night.
The doubleness of mind fails us. XXVI. yet Never from strangeness more than that it's strange Doth buy our perplexed thinking. Yet young enough its acting youth to ignore. For but one side of things the mirror knows. change. A double lie its truth is. Thought clouds our life's day-sense with strangeness. for we get But the words' sense from words--knowledge. And live but in the heat of error's youth. We are too far in us from outward truth To know how much we are not what we are. truth.19 We are in Fate and Fate's and do but lack Outness from soul to know ourselves its dwelling. which we Are at the words of. to glance At our exterior presence amid things. And knows it colded from its solidness. An unknown language speaks in us. The world is woven all of dream and error And but one sureness in our truth may lie-That when we hold to aught our thinking's mirror We know it not by knowing it thereby. fronted from reality. Sizing from otherness our countenance And seeing our puppet will's act-acting strings. . And do but compel Fate aside or back By Fate's own immanence in the compelling. what it shows By true show's false and nowhere by true place.
knowing we ne'er shall know. the first-lived as the last. but the new-waved flow! This thing Time is.20 We know the world is false. sure but of it and of my fear. How the to-be is infinitely ever Out of the place wherein it will be Now. 35 Sonnets  XXVII. Who could not be bought off by a shattered sun Or tricked by new use of our careful dates. not what is true. This thing Time is. Yet we think on. The equable tyrant of our different fates. that to the grave-will bear My heart. whose being is having none. . Like the seen wave yet far up in the river. And bygone things. In irreparable sameness far away. Which reaches not us. How yesterday is long ago! The past Is a fixed infinite distance from to-day.
 XXIX. if to be awake Be but to see this bright. The edge of the green wave whitely doth hiss Upon the wetted sand.21 XXVIII. yet dream. This common sleep of men. somewhere this surely doth but seem! The sky. the sea. I look. a too fair curse. Surely reality cannot be this! Somehow. If this be to have sense. the universe. this great extent disclosed Of outward joy. great sleep of things. Holding a dream too bitter. but something interposed. For the rarer potion mine own dreams I'll take And for truth commune with imaginings. Only what in this is not this is real. this bulk of life we feel. . Is not something.
35 Sonnets XXX. with having nothing sated. Within its dreams from its own dreams abated-This life let the Gods change or take away. lies Athwart the moment of our ceasing pain. Or if this flowered plant bears also a fruit Unto the true reality unknown. In the motion of moving poisèd aye. since pain is felt yet felt as ill. Hope hath a better warrant than being hoped. Since pain is felt as aught we should not feel Man hath a Nature's reason for having groped. To whom the power to will hath been denied And the will to renounce doth also miss. neither earth's nor sky's. For this endless succession of empty hours. voidly one. But as the rainbow.22 My weary life. My sated life. Stands in the dripping freshness of lulled rain. A hope. Somehow. not real yet not fancy's. . Doth undermine the very dreaming powers And dull even thought's active inaction. I do not know what truth the false untruth Of this sad sense of the seen world may own. that lives unsatisfied On the foiled off-brink of being e'er but this. Tainting with fore-unwilled will the dreamed act Twice thus removed from the unobtained fact. Like deserts after deserts.
Towards a better shelter than Time's pleasures. Thus I my hope on unknown truth lay. Which I cannot recall in colour or shape But haunts my hours like something that hath gleamed And yet is not as light remembered.23 Since Time was Time and age and grief his measures. Nor to the left or to the right conceived. And all round me tastes as if life were dead And the world made but to be disbelieved.  XXXI. And my adult oblivion of the clime Where I was born makes me not countryless. and dim through my daylight thoughts escape Yearnings for that land where my childhood dreamed. Ay. I am older than Nature and her Time By all the timeless age of Consciousness. yet How but by hope do I the unknown truth get? .
 XXXIII. ere I do hear. Hearing. When I see. . hears. Explaining all but the explanation. As if we a ciphered letter's cipher hit And find it in an unknown language writ. Like messengers that mock the message' mien. That come to explain and suddenly are gone. I am part Soul part I in all I touch-Soul by that part I hold in common with all. When I have sense of what to sense appears.24 35 Sonnets XXXII. before me abstract Seeing sees. that doth make sense such As I can err by it and my sense mine call. And I the spoiled part. When I hear. The rest is wondering what these thoughts may mean. Sense is sense ere 'tis mine or mine in me is.
This paradox of having. the blind-All who. Must bear accusing glances where I fail. the mad. stamped separate by curtailing birth. did curtail. May still by words be said to find a lack. though by its negative. Happy the maimed. advance. And he that seeks. Fate. So why call this world false. though he on nothing chance. to err Is to find truth. if false to be Be to be aught. Giving the ill. Though he doth not advance who goeth back.25 He that goes back does. shows not as outer cause. As giving not is acting not to give. For thinking nought does on nought being confer. and being aught Being to be? XXXIV. . Is yet true of the substance of pure thought And there means something by the nought it means. not Nature. Fixed in the general orbit of contempt. And. less than Nature in being kind to lacking. Owe no duty's allegiance to mankind Nor stand a valuing in their scheme of worth! But I. to the same unbribed true thought. By no exterior voidness being exempt. that is nought In the world's meaning of the things it screens. the halt. Making our mock-free will the mirror's backing Which Fate's own acts as if in itself shows. since he goes. whom Fate.
Good. that was the lot The regular stars bound us to. if we do't. Take place for cause and make our will Fate bear. that have failed in everything. seeing the image there. Sith to the mattering our will bringeth nought? With the higher trifling let us world our wit. like children. I have done. glad At mere being not-I (so my aches construe). bewail Nothing this hour but that I have bewailed. . My heart weighs. fate being past for Fate. I. For in the general fate what is't to fail? Why. I am sad. other. 'tis but to have failed. Whatever hap-or stop. when they stood Godfathers to our birth and to our blood. void statue of lit blue. Is altogether outward. 35 Sonnets  XXXV. what matters it. Conscious that.26 And men. The outer day.
