¡dolor! ¡dolor! Eterna Vida Mía - Poem by Jose Marti

¡Dolor! ¡Dolor! eterna vida mía,
Ser de mi ser, sin cuyo aliento muero!

Goce en buen hora espíritu mezquino
Al son del baile animador, y prenda
Su alma en las flores que el flotante lino
De mujeres bellísimas engasta:—

Goce en buen hora, y su cerebro encienda
En la rojiza lumbre de la incasta
Hoguera del deseo:—

Yo, —embriagado de mis penas,— me devoro,
Y mis miserias lloro,
Y buitre de mí mismo me levanto,
Y me hiero y me curo con mi canto,
Buitre a la vez que altivo Prometeo.—
