Sir, It has not yet fallen by Jose Marti (1895)

Sir, It has not yet fallen
the oak, chosen by you will suffer;
it even sounds by its fiber
broken the echo of the blow: still shakes and vibrates
Inside the trunk the steel, to the air the end:
Still by the root of the enslaved ground:
Sir, the fierce axe
It brandishes and trembles again, and this oak will die.

Sir, It has not yet fallen by Jose Marti (1895)
