Best Poem of Jose Marti

¡oh, Margarita!

Una cita a la sombra de tu oscuro
Portal donde el friecillo nos convida
A apretarnos los dos, de tan estrecho
Modo, que un solo cuerpo los dos sean:
Deja que el aire zumbador resbale,
Cargado de salud, como travieso
Mozo que las corteja, entre las hojas,
Y en el pino
Rumor y majestad mi verso aprenda.
Sólo la noche del amor es digna.
La oscuridad, la soledad convienen.
Ya no se puede amar, ¡oh Margarita!
