The year's doors open

like those of language,

toward the unknown.

Last night you told me:


we shall have to think up signs,

sketch a landscape, fabricate a plan

on the double page

of day and paper.

Tomorrow, we shall have to invent,

once more,

the reality of this world


--Octavio Paz
translated by Elizabeth Bishop from January First
