WHEN THE MUSIC BECOMES POETRY: Guantanamera, by Joseito Fernandez

guantanamera1.1GUANTANAMERA

Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma, y antes de morirme quiero echar mis versos del alma. Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, mi verso es de un verde claro, y de un carmin encendido. Mi verso es un ciervo herido, que busca en el monte amparo. Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, cultivo una rosa blanca, en Julio como en Enero, para el amigo sincero, que me da su mano franca. Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, y para el cruel que me arranca, el corazón con que vivo, cardo ni urtiga cultivo, cultivo la rosa blanca. Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, yo sé de un pesar profundo, entre las penas sin nombres, la esclavidad de los hombres es la gran pena del mundo! Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, con los pobres de la tierra, quiero yo mi suerte echar.Con los pobres de la tierra, quiero yo mi suerte echar, el arroyo de la sierra, me complace más que el mar. Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera.

guantanamera1.1I’m an honest man, from where the palm trees grow, and before I die I want to let my verses out of my soul. Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera. My verse is clear green, and burning red. My verse is clear green, and burning red. My verse is a wounded deer, that seeks refuge in the mountain. Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera. I cultivate a white rose, in June as in January, for a true friend, w.ho gives me his honest hand. Guantanamera, guajira guantanamera, and for the cruel one that tears away from me, the heart with which I live, and for the cruel one that tears away from me the heart with which I live. I cultivate neither thistles nor nettles, I cultivate the white rose. Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera. With the poor people of the earth, I want to make my destiny. The mountain stream, pleases me more than the ocean.
