Lope de Vega

(25 November 1562 – 27 August 1635 / Madrid)

¿Qué tengo yo que mi amistad procuras?


¿Qué tengo yo que mi amistad procuras?
¿Qué interés se te sigue, Jesús mío
que a mi puerta, cubierto de rocío,
pasas las noches del invierno escuras?

¡Oh, cuánto fueron mis entrañas duras,
pues no te abrí! ¡Qué estraño desvarío
si de mi ingratitud el yelo frío
secó las llagas de tus plantas puras!

¡Cuántas veces el ángel me decía:
Alma, asómate agora a la ventana,
verás con cuánto amor llamar porfía!

¡Y cuántas, hermosura soberana:
Mañana le abriremos --respondía--,
para lo mismo responder mañana!
