A Promise dies as petals burn

You do not love me                                                                                  
Love is more than just a word                                                                
Thorns have reached their depth

Enemy at the Gates

sent to the slaughter
caught between levels of hell...
neither one he chose

he lay amidst death
destiny arrived on time
alive…it chose him

Thaddaeus Haenke (Sentanka)

Thaddaeus Haenke
A man of thousand talents
Scientist and musician

His heart belonged to the Indios
His grave will never be found

-----------------------------------------

Thaddaeus Haenke
Ein Mann mit tausend Talenten
Wissenschaftler und Musiker

Sein Herz schlug für die Indios
Sein Grab wird man nie finden

----------------------------------------

Tadeo Henke 
Un hombre de  miles talentos 
Científico y músico

Tenía un gran corazón para los indios 
Su tumba nunca lo encontrarán
 

Note:
Thaddaeus Xaverius Peregrinus Haenke, also Tadeo Haenke, (*1761 in Kreibitz (Chribská), 
Bohemia, † 1816 in Cochabamba, Bolivia) was a German geographer, chemist, botanist and 
a studied philosopher, scientist, musician and explorer. He studies medicine, chemistry 
astronomy and botany in Prague and vienna. He missed the ship of the Spanish expedition 
lead by Alessandro Malaspina di Mulazzo. Unluckily the ship he then took sank in the delta of 
the River Plate but he survived and crossed the Andes on foot. He arrived in Santiago de 
Chile on April 2nd, 1790 and met the expedition there. He collected thousands of plants, 
insects and prepared animals which he sent to Madird. He studied local languages and took 
notes and made studies on ethnology and ethnolinguistics. He observed volcanoes anf 
thermal springs, silver mines in Potosí and rivers in Ecuador. He was the first European to 
climb the Chimborazo and other peaks of the Andes. Then he settled in Cochabamba, Bolivia 
and married Sebastiana Orozco, a mestiza-girl. He made scienticic studies for Spanish 
ministries and improved the extraction of copper and glass-production in Cochabamba and 
introduced a smallpox-vaccination, the first in Southamerica. He also opened Southamerica's 
first pharmacy for which he produced his own products. He is until today highly esteemed by 
the Indios. He developed explosives from salpeter found in the Atacama Desert of which the 
Spanish army profited. He discovered Victoria regia and Puya raimondii in Perú. During the 
revolutionary chaos he died under myterious circumstances on November 14th 1816 at the 
age of 54 in his house in Cochabamba. Poisoning as cause of his death could be possible. His 
personal belongings were confiscated by the Spanish government. Indios buried him at an 
unknown place in the Atacama Desert. Some of his descendants are still living in 
Southamerica. His scriptures and objects of studies are widely spread at European 
universities and collections.
