One of the poems in the book, Canción del jinete (Horseman’s Song) , appeared in advance in the Bulletin of the Centro Artístico in 1924. Very few others were published earlier in magazines. The exceptions were Arbolé, arbolé (Tree, tree), which appeared in the magazine España in 1923 and in El Estudiante in 1926, and El niño mudo (The Mute Boy), dedicated to Zenobia Camprubí, which appeared in Verso y Prosa (Verse and Prose) in 1927.
