These Poemas de amor by Alfonsina Storni, the author's only prose work, were published in 1926 but did not appear among her complete Poems, despite being one of her most intense and passionate books. On his composition process he wrote: "I write these lines as a medium, under the dictation of mysterious beings who reveal my thoughts. I do not have time to reason them. They run over and come down to my hand in great leaps. I tremble and I am afraid."
