La gaviota
(Silvio Rodriguez)
Corrian los dias de fines de guerra
y habia un soldado regresando intacto:
intacto del frio mortal de la tierra,
intacto de flores de horror en su cuarto.
Elev los ojos, respir profundo,
la palabra cielo se hizo en su boca
y como si no hubiera mas en el mundo
por el firmamento pas una gaviota.
Gaviota, gaviota, vals del equilibrio,
cadencia increible, llamada en el hombro.
Gaviota, gaviota, blancura del lirio,
aire y bailarina, gaviota de asombro.
A dnde te marchas, cancin de la brisa,
tan rapida, tan detenida,
disparo en la sien y metralla en la risa,
gaviota que pasa y se lleva la vida?
Corrian los dias de fines de guerra,
pas una gaviota volando, volando
lento, como un tiempo de amor que se cierra,
imperio de ala, de cielo y de cuando.
Gaviota, gaviota, vals del equilibrio,
cadencia increible, llamada en el hombro.
Gaviota, gaviota, blancura del lirio,
aire y bailarina, gaviota de asombro.
Corrian los dias de fines de guerra,
pas una gaviota volando
y el que anduvo intacto rod por la tierra:
hurfano, desnudo, herido, sangrando.
1976
