Besa el aura que gime blandamente

Language: Spanish (Español)

Besa el aura que gime blandamente
las leves ondas que jugando riza;
el sol besa a la nube en occidente 
y de púrpura y oro la matiza;
la llama en derredor del tronco ardiente 
por besar a otra llama se desliza; 
y hasta el sauce, inclinándose a su peso, 
al río que le besa vuelve un beso.
