Gustavo Adolfo Becquer

(17 February 1836 - 22 December 1870 / Seville)

Rima XXVI


Voy contra mi interés al confesarlo;
no obstante, amada mía,
pienso, cual tú, que una oda sólo es buena
de un billete del Banco al dorso escrita.
No faltará algún necio que al oírlo
se haga cruces y diga:
—Mujer al fin del siglo diecinueve,
material y prosaica... ¡Boberías!

Voces que hacen correr cuatro poetas
que en invierno se embozan con la lira;
¡Ladridos de los perros a la luna!
Tú sabes y yo sé que en esta vida
con genio es muy contado el que la escribe,
y con oro cualquiera hace poesía.
