1-Curves and lines in iron adorn
Protecting the views that enclose
us in peace
Such harmonic and gentle enchantment.
protect the days
And nights of tranquillity and sleep,
From the rain that beats sonorous,
Leaves dance with rhythm of wind.
3-In park of flowers, evergreen trees,
Macaws and peacocks circle by
O’er lawns and ponds they drink from
Water limpid, clear nurturing all.
4-And there lived I through decades long
Thus cherished and well protected
From world external to be known;
Happy days from spring to autumn.
5-My room enchanted and lovely,
Long silky curtains walls surrounded
By carved wooden flowers
In delicate colours and curves.
6-External shadows sheltered
In light of moon watch out our peace,
Apart rain patter, silence reigned,
murmur of the wind on leaves.
7-Sharp fences separating worlds,
inside and other outside
Limits the fields of our kingdom,
From the seas of the savage streets.
