A WOMAN HAS POISONED MY SOUL
by: Gustavo Adolfo Becquer (1836-1870)
- woman has poisoned my soul,
- Another has poisoned my body;
- Neither came for me,
- Of neither do I complain.
- As the world is round, this earthly wheel;
- If tomorrow, rolling along, this poison
- Poisons another in turn, don't accuse me.
- Should I not give what I have been given?
