A Sara


A J. DE J. Núñez y Domínguez


A mi paso y al azar te desprendiste
Como el fruto más profano
Que pudiera concederme la benévola
Actitud de este verano.

(Blonda Sara, uva en sazón: mi apego franco
a tu persona, hoy me incita
a burlarme de mi ayer, por la inaudita
buena fe con que creí mi sospechosa
vocación, la de un levita.)

Sara, Sara: eres flexible cual la honda
De David y contundente
Como el lírico guijarro del mancebo;
Y das, paralelamente,
Una tortura de hielo y una combustión de pira;
Y si en vértigo de abismo tu pelo se desmadeja,
Todavía, con brazo heroico
Y en caída acelerada, sostienes a tu pareja.

Sara, Sara, golosina de horas muelles;
Racimo copioso y magno de promisión, que fatigas.
El dorso de dos hebreos:
Siempre te sean amigas
La llamarada del sol y del clavel; si tu brava
Arquitectura se rompe como un hilo inconsistente,
Que bajo la tierra lóbrega
Esté incólume tu frente;
Y que refulja tu blonda melena, como tesoro
Escondido; y que se guarden indemnes como real sello
Tus brazos y la columna
De tu cuello.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
