Por la blanda arena
Que lame el mar
Su pequea huella
No vuelve ms
Un sendero solo
De pena y silencio lleg
Hasta el agua profunda
Un sendero solo
De penas mudas lleg
Hasta la espuma.
Sabe Dios qu angustia
Te acompa
Qu dolores viejos
Call tu voz
Para recostarte
Arrullada en el canto
De las caracolas marinas
La cancin que canta
En el fondo oscuro del mar
La caracola.
Te vas Alfonsina
Con tu soledad
Qu poemas nuevos
Fuste a buscar?
Una voz antiga
De viento y de sal
Te requiebra el alma
Y la est llevando
Y te vas hacia all
Como en sueos
Dormida, Alfonsina
Vestida de mar.
Cinco sirenitas
Te llevarn
Por caminos de algas
Y de coral
Y fosforescentes
Caballos marinos harn
Una ronda a tu lado
Y los habitantes
Del agua van a jugar
Pronto a tu lado.
Bjame la lmpara
Un poco ms
Djame que duerma
Nodriza, en paz
Y si llama l
No le digas nunca que estoy
Di que me he ido.
Te vas Alfonsina
Con tu soledad
Qu poemas nuevos
Fueste a buscar?
Una voz antiga
De viento y de sal
Te requiebra el alma
Y la est llevando
Y te vas hacia all
Como en sueos
Dormida, Alfonsina
Vestida de mar

    I regard this as the most haunting song in any language. Based on the true story of an Italian woman who migrated to Argentina and later committed suicide by walking into the sea. It was first written as a pure poem, and later made into this song. It has been sung all over the world in multiple languages, and I believe it's because the feelings of loss it communicates go beyond physical and geographical barriers.
