Welcome, by Mario Benedetti
It occurs to me that you are going to get different
not exactly cuter
nor more docile
no more cautious
just that you're going to get different
as if this season of not seeing me
I would have surprised you too
maybe because you know
how do I think about you and I'll list you
after all, nostalgia exists
although we do not cry on the ghostly platforms
nor on candor pillows
nor under the opaque sky
and how it bursts me that he nostalgie
your face is the vanguard
maybe it comes first
because I paint it on the walls
with invisible and safe strokes
do not forget that your face
Looks at me as a people
Smile and rage and sing
as a people
and that gives you a fire
now I have no doubt
You will arrive different and with signs
I know I'm going to love you without questions
I know you're going to love me without answers.

Amor eterna, by Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer
The sun may cloud forever;
The sea may dry up in an instant;
The axis of the earth can be broken
Like a weak crystal.
Everything will happen! May death
Cover me with his funeral crepe;
But never in me can it be extinguished
The flame of your love.

Esclava mía, by Pablo Neruda
My slave, fear me. Love me. My slave!
I am with you the vastest sunset in my sky,
and in it my soul stands out like a cold star.
When they move away from you, my steps return to me.
My own lash falls on my life.
You are what is inside me and is far away.
Fleeing like a chorus of persecuted mists.
Next to me, but where? Far, which it is far.
And what is far beneath my feet walks.
The echo of the voice beyond silence.
And what in my soul grows like moss in the ruins.

If you love me, love me whole. by Dulce María Loynaz
If you love me, love me whole,
not by areas of light or shadow ...
If you love me, love me black
and white, and gray, green, and blonde,
and brunette ...
Love me day,
love me night ...
And early in the open window! ...
If you love me, do not cut me:
Love me all! ... Or do not love me

Farewell, by Jorge Luis Borges
Between my love and I have to get up
three hundred nights like three hundred walls
and the sea will be a magic between us.
There will be nothing but memories.
Oh evenings worthy of the pain,
Hopeful nights of looking at you,
fields of my way, sky
what am I seeing and losing ...
Definitive as a marble
your absence will sadden other afternoons.

the image of the top,
I run to look at you in you?

Give me your hand, by Gabriela Mistral
Give me your hand and we will dance;
Give me your hand and you will love me.
As a single flower we will be,
like a flower, and nothing else ...
The same verse we will sing,
at the same pace you will dance.
Like a spike we will undulate,
like a spike, and nothing else.
Your name is Rosa and I Hope;
but your name you will forget,
because we will be a dance.

Sonnet V, by Garcilaso de la Vega
Written in my soul is your gesture ...
Your gesture is written in my soul
and how much I write of you I wish;
you just wrote it, I read it
so alone, that even of you I keep in this.
In this I am and I will always be put;
that although it does not fit in me how much in you I see,
of so much what I do not understand I think,
already taking faith by budget.
I was not born but to love;
my soul has cut you to your measure;
by the habit of the soul I love you;
as much as I confess I owe you;
for you I was born, for you I have life,
for you I have to die and for you I die.
- Analysis of the poem : one of those lifelong love poems, which tells us about a naked, mystical crush, outside of any circumstance or condition.
Powder of love, by Francisco de Quevedo
Last love beyond death.
Close may my eyes the last
Shadow that will take me the white day,
And you can unleash this soul of mine
Hora, to his eager anxious flattery;
But not from another part on the riverbank
It will leave the memory, where it burned:
Swim knows my flame the cold water,
And lose respect for severe law.
Alma, whom a whole prison God has been,
Veins, what humor to so much fire have given,
Medulas, which have gloriously burned,
Your body will leave, not your care;
They will be ash, but it will make sense;
Dust will be, more dust in love.
- Analysis of the poem : the Spanish author appeals to a love that does not disappear even when the souls are gone.
Love, by Pablo Neruda
Woman, I would have been your son, for drinking
milk from the breasts as from a spring,
for looking at you and feeling by my side and having you
in the golden laugh and the crystal voice.
To feel you in my veins like God in the rivers
and adore you in the sad bones of dust and lime,
because your being will pass without grief next to me
and came out in the stanza - clean of all evil.
How would I know how to love you, woman, how would I know?
love you, love you like nobody ever knew!
Die and still
love you more.
love you more
- Analysis of the poem : a romantic recognition of the figure of women, one of the most emblematic poets of Latin America.
I love you by eyebrow, by Julio Cortázar
I love you by eyebrow, by hair, I debate you in runners
whites where fountains are played
of the light,
I discuss each name, I tear you with delicacy
I'm putting lightning ashes in your hair and
tapes that slept in the rain.
I do not want you to have a form, that you're
precisely what comes behind your hand,
because water, consider water, and lions
when they dissolve in the sugar of the fable,
and the gestures, that architecture of nothing,
lighting their lamps in the middle of the meeting.
Every morning is the blackboard where I invent you and you
soon to erase you, so you are not, nor with that
straight hair, that smile.
I'm looking for your sum, the edge of the cup where the wine
it is also the moon and the mirror,
I look for that line that makes a man tremble in
a museum gallery.
Besides, I love you, and long and cold.
- Analysis of the poem : true to his style, Julio Cortázar talked like that about a love that made him lose his mind.
Morning sonnet to a weightless schoolgirl, by Gabriel García-Márquez
As he passes, he greets me and after the wind
which gives the breath of his voice early
in the square light of a window
it becomes cloudy, not the glass, but the breath
It's early like a bell.
It fits in the improbable, like a story
and when he cuts the thread of the moment
she pours her white blood the morning.
If you dress in blue and go to school,
it does not distinguish if it walks or flies
because it's like the breeze, so light
that in the blue morning it is not necessary
which of the three that pass is the breeze,
what is the girl and what is the morning.
- Analysis of the poem : the author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" described a short Platonic romance with a young schoolgirl.
Cover me, love, the heaven of the mouth, by Rafael Alberti
Cover me, love, the heaven of the mouth
with that rapturous extreme foam,
which is the jasmine of the one who knows and the one who burns,
sprouted in rock coral point.
Meet me, love, your salt, crazy
Your lancinating sharp supreme flower,
Bending his fury in the headband
of the mordant carnation that drives her away.
Oh tight flow, love, oh beautiful
bubbling temperate of the snow
for such a narrow grotto in raw flesh,
to watch how your fine neck
it slips, love, and it rains
of jasmine and saliva stars!
- Analysis of the poem : about feminine beauty and its honeys. The great Rafael Alberti.
As if every kiss, by Fernando Pessoa
As if each kiss
Out of farewell,
Chloé mine, let's kiss, loving.
Maybe we'll already touch
On the shoulder the hand that calls
To the boat that comes only empty;
And that in the same beam
Tie what we were mutually
And the other universal sum of life.
- Analysis of the poem : the Portuguese writer described in this way a unique, special, memorable love.
