As long as you fall asleep. Poems for children


Gabriela Mistral is one of the most important Chilean poets. Although her work is abundant, part of it is dedicated to children, and she was a rural teacher for 15 years.

His direct, simple and musical poems like this one: As long as you fall asleep, are perfect for reading to children and that they can approach poetry.

The red rose

caught yesterday;

fire and cinnamon

that they call carnation;

the baked bread

of anise with honey,

and the fish in the flask

that makes it burn:

all yours

son of a woman,

as long as you want

fall asleep at once.

The rose, I say:

I say the carnation.

The fruit, I say,

and I say honey;

and the fish of lights

and more and more too,

As long as you sleep

until sunrise!
