I didn't know Jose Asuncion Silva and his interesting poetry. Thank you PH
This great Colombian poet is one of the greatest of the modernist movement. Silva just like Marti and Dario rejected a materialist world that was killing humanity just like today!
The little girl, though very ill,Went out one morningTo wander, with faltering footsteps,The nearby hill.She brought back mountain flowersIn which she hidA chrysalis and, unknowing, set itClose beside her bed.
