POETRY FORMAT, 29 May 2017
I tore off two red poppies
At the foot of Toledo,
And gave my heart to the country
Under the bright blue sky.
The garden is fragrant in the Alhambra,
On the walls is lace knitting,
I feel happiness with a sinking heart
And go inside, praying…
There are two intertwined beliefs,
The palaces are built on a grand scale,
Mosques, temples are rushing up,
Praising God and Allah!
In the country of “flamenco” life is a joy,
Store the traditions of the centuries,
Seville, Cordoba, Granada
European Union touched lightly.
As a traveler, thirsty tormented,
I aspire to capture everything!
Madrid and a grove of oranges,
You managed to warm me up!
