by Leopoldo Lugones Argüello (1874 - 1938)

Lied del secreto dichoso
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Corazón que bien se da,
Tiene que darse callado,
Sin que el mismo objeto amado
Llegue a saberlo quizá.

Que ni un suspiro indiscreto
Nuestros firmes labios abra.
Que la más dulce palabra
Muera en dichoso secreto.

Todo calla alrededor.
Y la noche, sobre el mundo,
Se embellece en el profundo
Misterio de nuestro amor.
