Rimas humanas CXCI

Lope de Vega 1562 (Madrid) – 1635 (Madrid)



Es la mujer del hombre lo más bueno,
y locura decir que lo más malo,
su vida suele ser y su regalo,
su muerte suele ser y su veneno.

  Cielo a los ojos cándido y sereno,           
que muchas veces al infierno igualo,
por raro al mundo su valor señalo
por falso al hombre su rigor condeno.

  Ella nos da su sangre, ella nos cría,
no ha hecho el cielo cosa más ingrata;         
es un ángel, y a veces una arpía.

  Quiere, aborrece, trata bien, maltrata,
y es la mujer, al fin, como sangría,
que a veces da salud y a veces mata.
