A Las Virgenes

¡Oh vírgenes rebeldes y sumisas:
convertidme en el fiel reclinatorio
de vuestros oídos y vuestras sonrisas
y en la fragua sangrienta del holgorio
en que quieren quemarse vuestras prisas!…

¡Oh botones baldíos en el huerto
de una resignación llena de abrojos:
lloráis un bien que, sin nacer, ha muerto,

[Hata Bildir]
