Comments about Alfonsina Storni

    Esta poeta argentina nacida en 1892 en Suiza es uno de los íconos de la literatura posmodernista. Con una infancia difícil y con carencias y luego una vida con recurrentes enfermedades, su poesía está impregnada de lucha, audacia, amor y una reivindicación del género femenino. Algunos de sus poemas a resaltar son: ¡Adiós! , Alma desnuda, La caricia perdida, Razones y paisajes de amor, Queja, Tu dulzura, Dolor y Frente al mar.

Best Poem of Alfonsina Storni

Little Little Man

Little little man, little little man,
set free your canary that wants to fly.
I am that canary, little little man,
leave me to fly.

I was in your cage, little little man,
little little man who gave me my cage.
I say "little little" because you don't understand me
Nor will you understand.

Nor do I understand you, but meanwhile,
open for me the cage from which I want to escape.
Little little man, I loved you half an hour,
Don't ask me again.

Sleep Peacefully

You said the word that enamors
My hearing. You already forgot. Good.
Sleep peacefully. Your face should
Be serene and beautiful at all hours.

When the seductive mouth enchants
It should be fresh, your speech pleasant;
For your office as lover it's not good
That many tears come from your face.
