You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

No quiero tus avellanas

Language: Spanish (Español)

No quiero tus avellanas, 
tampoco tus alelíes,
porque me han salido vanas 
las palabras que me diste.

Las palabras que me diste yendo 
por aqua a la fuente,
como eran palabras de amor 
se las llevó la corriente.

Se las llevó la corriente 
de las cristalinas aguas
hasta llegar a la fuente 
donde me diste palabra,

Donde me diste palabra 
de ser mía hasta la muerte.
