Today in Language: Alfonso Reyes

El escritor y político Alfonso Reyes nació el 17 de mayo, 1889. Escribió su poema "Apenas" en 1927 en la ciudad de Buenos Aires: 

A veces, hecho de nada,
sube un efluvio del suelo.
De repente, a la callada,
suspira de aroma el cedro.

Como somos la delgada
disolución de un secreto,
a poco que cede el alma
desborda la fuente un sueño.

¡Mísera cosa la vaga
razón cuando, en el silencio,
una como resolana
me baja, de tu recuerdo!
