Suelo. Nada más.
Suelo. Nada menos.
Y que te baste con eso.
Porque en el suelo los pies hincados,
en los pies torso derecho,
en el torso la testa firme,
y allá, al socaire de la frente,
la idea pura y en la idea pura
el mañana, la llave
-mañana- de lo eterno.
Suelo. Ni más ni menos.
Y que te baste con eso
(Pedro Salinas)
