Del salón en el ángulo oscuro

Language: Spanish (Español)

Del salón en el ángulo oscuro, 
de su dueña tal vez olvidada,
silenciosa y cubierta de polvo, 
veíase el arpa.

¡Cuánta nota dormía en sus cuerdas, 
como el pájaro duerme en las ramas,
esperando la mano de nieve 
que sabe arrancarlas!

¡Ay!, pensé: ¡cuántas veces el genio 
así duerme en el fondo del alma 
y una voz como Lázaro espera 
que le diga: »Levántate y anda«!
