Cómo los pájaros

Language: Spanish (Español)

Ya se alzan los pájaros, tiéndeme la mano.
Nos iremos, juntos, tras el sol lejano;
nos iremos, juntos, cuando el bosque cante,
trémulos los labios, el pecho anhelante,
oyendo el albogue de los hontanares...
Serán tus penares mis viejos penares,
serán tus ensueños los ensueños míos;
huyendo de pueblos y de caseríos,
errantes y alegres, como los vencejos,
cuando el bosque cante nos iremos lejos,
tan lejos, que el viento, cual galgo cansino,
se echará vencido tras nuestro camino.
Nos iremos lejos de este mundo vano,
nos iremos, juntos, tras el sol lejano,
tu mano en mi mano.
