8AmorEl amor, ¿a qué huele? Parece, cuando se ama, que el mundo entero tiene rumor de primavera. Las hojas secas tornan y las ramas con nieve, y él sigue ardiente y joven, oliendo a la rosa eterna. Por todas partes abre guirnaldas invisibles, todos sus fondos son líricos -risa o pena-, la mujer a su beso cobra un sentido mágico que, como en los senderos, sin cesar se renueva... Vienen al alma música de ideales conciertos, palabras de una brisa liviana entre arboledas; se suspira y se llora, y el suspiro y el llanto dejan como un romántico frescor de madreselvas...Juan Ramón Jiménez
