Best Poem of Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda

Al Partir

¡Perla del mar! ¡Estrella de Occidente!
¡Hermosa Cuba! tu brillante cielo,
la noche cubre con su opaco velo
como cubre el dolor mi triste frente.

Voy a partir… La chusma diligente
para arrancarme del nativo suelo
las velas iza y pronta a su desvelo
la brisa acude de tu zona ardiente.

¡Adiós, patria feliz!, ¡Edén querido!
Doquier que el hado en su furor me impela
tu dulce nombre halagará mi oído.

Ah, que ya cruje la turgente vela,
el ancla se alza, el buque estremecido
las olas corta y silencioso vuela.
