Y lo que es más, serás un Hombre, hijo mío


De Rudyard Kipling

Si…

Si puedes mantener la cabeza sobre los hombros
cuando otros la pierden y te cargan su culpa,
Si confías en ti mismo aún cuando todos de ti dudan,
pero aún así tomas en cuenta sus dudas;
Si puedes esperar sin que te canse la espera,
o soportar calumnias sin pagar con la misma moneda,
o ser odiado sin dar cabida al odio,
y ni ensalzas tu juicio ni ostentas tu bondad:

Si puedes soñar y no hacer de tus sueños tu guía;
Si puedes pensar sin hacer de tus pensamientos tu meta;
Si Triunfo y Derrota se cruzan en tu camino
y tratas de igual manera a ambos impostores,
Si puedes tolerar que los bribones,
tergiversen la verdad que has expresado
y que sea trampa de necios en boca de malvados,
o ver en ruinas la obra de tu vida,
y agacharte a forjarla con útiles mellados:

Si puedes hacer un montón con todas tus victorias
Si puedes arrojarlas al capricho del azar,
y perder, y remontarte de nuevo a tus comienzos
sin que salga de tus labios una queja;
Si logras que tus nervios y el corazón sean tu fiel compañero
y resistir aunque tus fuerzas se vean menguadas
con la única ayuda de la voluntad que dice: “¡Adelante!”

Si ante la multitud das a la virtud abrigo,
Si aún marchando con reyes guardas tu sencillez,
Si no pueden herirte ni amigos ni enemigos,
Si todos te reclaman y ninguno te precisa;
Si puedes rellenar un implacable minuto
con sesenta segundos de combate bravío,
tuya es la Tierra y sus codiciados frutos,
Y, lo que es más, ¡serás un Hombre, hijo mío!



If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!





No recuerdo el momento de "El hombre que pudo reinar" de John Huston en el que se cita este poema. ¿Alguien me ayuda?

Yo me sabía una traducción rimada de este poema:

Si guardas en su puesto la cabeza tranquila
cuando todo a tu lado es cabeza perdida.
Si tienes en ti mismo una fe que te niegan
y no desprecias nunca las dudas que ellos tengan.
Si esperas en tu puesto sin fatiga en la espera;
si, engañado, no engañas;
si no buscas más odio que el odio que te tengan.
Si eres bueno y no finges ser mejor de lo que eres;
si al hablar no exageras lo que sabes y quieres.

Si sueñas, y los sueños no te hacen su esclavo;
si piensas, y rechazas lo que piensas en vano.
Si tropiezas el triunfo, si llega tu derrota,
y a los dos impostores los tratas de igual forma.
Si logras que se sepa la verdad que has hallado
a pesar del sofisma del orbe encanallado.
Si vuelves al comienzo de la obra perdida,
aunque esta obra sea la de toda tu vida.

Si arriesgas en un golpe y lleno de alegría
tus ganancias de siempre a la suerte de un dí­a,
y pierdes, y te lanzas de nuevo a la pelea
sin decir nada a nadie de lo que es y lo que era.
Si logras que tus nervios y el corazón te asistan
aun después de su fuga de tu cuerpo en fatiga,
y se agarren contigo cuando no quede nada
porque tú lo deseas, y lo quieres, y mandas.

Si hablas con el pueblo y guardas tu virtud,
si marchas junto a reyes con tu paso y tu luz.
Si nadie que te hiera llega a hacerte una herida.
Si todos te reclaman y ni uno te precisa.
Si llenas el minuto inolvidable y cierto
de sesenta segundos que te lleven al cielo...
todo lo de esta tierra será de tu dominio
y mucho más aún: ¡serás Hombre, Hijo mío!


Lo del orbe encanallado me tenía alucinada. Pero, pese a esa frase y a la traducción muy libre de los sesenta segundos, siempre me pareció una versión bastante lograda.

El hombre que pudo reinar nunca la he visto, no puedo ayudarte. Tuve la ocasión hace tres semanas, el 9 de Agosto, en la filmoteca de verano al aire libre; pero tenía la maleta por hacer y me dio pereza.

Besitos.

Iolite pendant is a treasure to have, paired with silver or gold,
the gem's colour is captivating. Platinum doesn't tarnish, and for
those with sensitive skin, it is also hypoallergenic, making it comfortable to wear.
Let me be honest with you, it's true - diamonds are in a girl's best friend.
