Leche que fluye, leche que mana,
Leche de madre que de los pechos

Leche tibia, leche sabrosa
Color de nube, leche tan dulce
Como el  néctar de flores.

Leche que nutre,  así como la
Savia lo hace con las plantas,
Leche que espera a que el crío
La ingiera.

¡Ya, ya mi niño, no llores más!
Lleva tu boca hasta la areola
Y extrae la leche que emerge
De mis pechos como un manantial

Leche de madre, leche sabrosa
Para darle a mi niño lo que mi
Cuerpo, tan sabiamente para
Él forma.

Milk that Flows

By Marta Leticia Sierra Morales – Hidalgo, Mexico
Translated by Roberto Muñoz Sierra

Milk that flows, milk that emanates,
Mother’s milk that wells from the breasts.
Lukewarm milk, tasty milk, milk the color of clouds, milk as sweet as the nectar of flowers.

Milk that nurtures, as the sap does with the flowers, milk waiting for the child to ingest it.

Hush now my child and cry no more, take your mouth to the areola and extract the milk that emerges from my breasts, like a neverending spring.

Mother’s milk, tasty milk, wisely produced by my body, to give it to my child.

You can print to paper or to a PDF file.

For example, if you are working on a Windows computer, and you want to print to a PDF file, select Save as PDF.

4. As required, configure the other options such as the pages to print.

If you are generating a PDF, click Save. You are prompted for the name and folder location to save the file.
