Que es Puerto Rico?

Es la isla del encanto
Es la isla del paraíso soñado
Del prejuicio esta aíslado
y su clima siempre es soleado.
Con orgullo es mi Puerto Rico amado.

El mar es brillante y espumoso
sus valles y montañas son verdosos.
el cielo siempre esta luminoso,
y sus otoños y primaveras son preciosos.

Si a otros sitios te has marchado,
ver la isla a la distancia, aislado,
es sentirse de la familia apartado
al ver radiantes campos probandonos
Que es mi Puerto Rico mi isla del encanto.

!Como daría ser viento para acariciarte!
!o ser el hermoso mar para poder besarte!
Ser las cubiertas tierras para roparte
El luminoso cielo para apreciarte.
A pesar que no soy la naturaleza para abrazarte,
pero si soy pura puertoriqueña para amarte.

Blanco, Negro, Indio, tres razas unidas,
Cuando me siento sola mi naturaleza es mi amiga
Al ver como gozan los niños y los cantos de las golondrinas.

La misma expresion que dio Cristobal Colón
Es la misma que siento yo.
!Que hermoso es su vergel que no tiene comparacion!
Y con orgullo y honor mi lenguage es español.

Mi tierra es lo mas lindo
Y por nada del mundo la he vendido
Ser puertoriqueña es lo mejor que he tenido
Es mi isla querida, es mi bello Puerto Rico.

What is Puerto Rico?

It is the island of enchantment
the paradise we dream of
prejudice it does not tolerate
and with it’s always sunny climate
I am proud to say
that it is Puerto Rico I love.

The ocean is brilliant and full of foam
and green is the color of it’s mountains and valleys.
The sky is always so bright
and it’s springs and autumns are
all such beauties.

If to others places you have gone
and isolated you see the island from a distance
it is a feeling that from family you are being pulled apart
when you see the countrysides tasting us ever so radiant
This is my Puerto Rico, land of enchantment.

What would I give to be wind to be able to caress you
or the beautiful sea to be able to kiss you
to be the covers of the land to be able to cover you
even though I am not mother nature to be able to hold you
but I am a pure puertorican to be able to love you.

Black, White, Indian, three races united

When I feel alone nature is my friend
seeing how the children have fun
and hearing the songs of the swallows.

The same expression that Christopher Columbus gave
is the same one that I feel
“How beautfiul is your fruit and flower garden
there is no comparism!”

Artist's Description

To be honest with you, it was my middle daughter, Frances, who wrote this poem since she was born in Puerto Rico and this was her sentiment. She is now living in Florida and I am still in Puerto Rico. She asked if I could post it for her. . She has her style of writing and I have mine since I am a newyorican. Hope you enjoy. The translation in English is below.

Estos sentimientos fueron expresados por mi hija cuando estuvo en la intermedia acerca de Puerto Rico donde ella nacío. Espero que lo disfruten. Iris
