“Rima XXI”, por Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer

Another short and powerful poem by Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, this poem of four lines defines poetry itself… although the poet’s answer may say more about his feelings for the asker than his actual opinion! Can you memorise this poem?


¿Qué es poesía?, dices mientras clavas

en mi pupila tu pupila azul.

¿Qué es poesía? Y tú me lo preguntas?

Poesía… eres tú.
