Manuel Gutierrez Najera 1859 (Mexico City) – 1895 (Mexico City)



Las novias pasadas son copas vacías,
en ellas pusimos un poco de amor;
el néctar tomamos... huyeron los días...
¡Traed otras copas con nuevo licor!

¡Champán son las rubias de cutis de azalia;
borgoña los labios de vivo carmín;
los ojos obscuros son vino de Italia
los verdes y claros son vino del Rhin!

¡Las bocas de grana son húmedas fresas;
las negras pupilas escancian café,

son ojos azules las llamas traviesas
que trémulas corren como almas del té!

¡La copa se apura, la dicha se agota;
de un sorbo tomamos mujer y licor...
Las copas dejemos...; si queda una gota,
que beba el lacayo la heces de amor!
