DIEGO MARTIN

By Kobo Town

My first memory, Diego Martin,
Was the sight of you
Sunlight streaming over your mountains
As dawn cracked slowly, surely down your hills
Everything standing still,
Save a restless child climbing the windowsill
Diego Martin, oh, I remember
The smell of sweetbread floating down from the corner
Diego Martin, I remember
How the years slipped by and you grew smaller and smaller.

My worst memory, Diego Martin,
Was the fading sight of you on that Monday morning
As you slipped slowly, surely from my view
To remain from then on a distant point beyond the horizon
Diego Martin, oh, I remember
How the sea, the land, the years grew wide between us
Diego Martin, I remember
How memory like a bridge leaped across the distance.
Diego Martin, I remember
The smell of sweetbread floating down from the corner
Diego Martin, I remember
How the years slipped by and you grew smaller and smaller,
How the years slipped by and you grew smaller and smaller,
How the years slipped by and you grew smaller and smaller.

A Note From The Gull

Simply beautiful! Thank you, Kobo Town.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
Guanaguanare
