Poetry: To the Country by Rubén Darío
Prairie land, Happy days. In Royal Buenos Ayres
Now far, far behind are left the fire, and terrific heat.
Today in thy verdant exultation all my day dreams will come to life
And I shall inhale thy fragrant breath and bathe me in thy sun.
Lyrical: Deathly by Aimee Mann
Now that I’ve met you/Would you object to/Never seeing each other again
