Sobre cartas de amor, por Mario Benedetti

Una carta de amor
no es un naipe de amor

una carta de amor tampoco es una carta
pastoral o crédito / de pago o fletamento

en cambio se asemeja a una carta de amparo
ya que si la alegría o la tristeza
se animan a escribir una carta de amor
es porque en las entrañas de la noche
se abren la euforia o la congoja
las cenizas se olvidan de su hoguera
o la culpa se asila en su pasado
una carta de amor
es por lo general un pobre afluente
de un río caudaloso
y nunca está a la altura del paisaje
ni de los ojos que miraron verdes
ni de los labios dulces
que besaron temblando o no besaron
ni del cielo que a veces se desploma
en trombas en escarnio o en granizo

una carta de amor puede enviarse
desde un altozano o desde una mazmorra
desde la exaltación o desde el duelo
pero no hay caso / siempre
será tan sólo un calco
una copia frugal del sentimiento

una carta de amor no es el amor
sino un informe de la ausencia

stwee133, your opinion about Google translate software might be of some interest to users of this site, but your simultaneous promotion of a product totally unrelated to poetry is spam which has no place here. Use the edit function and delete it!
