Like the rain that pours in the arid backlands,
making blossom the most shriveled of branches
I will work my days!
I will cultivate friendships
And, with all willpower,
I will perpetuate peace!
I will defend nature!
I will delight my eyes with such beauty.
And, by greater force,
I will compose from the primest melody
Charms of sympathy.
I will profuse embraces, 
I will cheer up souls.
I will walk together.
And even when I’m out of things to say,
I will bid cheers to silence!
And who knows, maybe one day, 
And seeing life as celebration,
I will be rain pouring in aridness!

    Benedito, what beautiful use of the English language! I admire the courage of one who says, "I will," as opposed to, "I'll try." There is no doubt you see "life as celebration"! This is the first of your works I have read and I am looking forward to reading more. Excellent! Carolyn
