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.

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.

I Am Going To Sleep

Teeth of flowers, hairnet of dew,
hands of herbs, you, perfect wet nurse,
prepare the earthly sheets for me
and the down quilt of weeded moss.

I am going to sleep, my nurse, put me to bed.
Set a lamp at my headboard;
a constellation; whatever you like;
all are good: lower it a bit.
