Jiménez, "Eternidad"

A work ("Eternity") by this Spanish poet.  You can read the original here.

Eternity, O beauty pure!
If only I could slip as bold 
Into your heart, as you unfold
Your world in mine, when your voice sings 
Clear, happy, peaceful evenings! 

In your last stasis so subdued,
If you were then to feel my soul 
Inebriate you, all of you,
As you intoxicate me whole!  

Were I but as ineffable,
As you in my most fleeting springs,
Scents, freshness, music, flutterings, 
Pure intimate spring would unpin  
Your endless unity within!
