The Green (verde)

There is a green dream in your soul that fulfills its role
with life.

There is a magic power in your hands
that acknowledges earth's bounty and puts down roots.

There is a miracle in your love
that bears flower and fruit
and perpetuates itself.

There can be so succes
for those who build deserts
and hunger
as long as we can repeat,
in its generations,
the simple gesture of your clean hands
and of your words,
for love of this green.

    We were there today (Sep 2009) and now the park is completely in disrepair, polluted, and generally disgusting in the entire strip through which the river runs.
