I Cultivate The White Rose By Jose Marti.

Cultivo Una Rosa Blanca
por José Martí

Cultivo una rosa blanca
en junio como enero
para el amigo sincero
que me da su mano franca.
Y para el cruel que me arranca
el corazón con que vivo,
cardo ni ortiga cultivo;
rosa blanca.
Cultivo Una Rosa Blanca
por José Martí (Cuban Poet,1891)


Cultivo una rosa blanca
en junio como enero
para el amigo sincero
que me da su mano franca.
Y para el cruel que me arranca
el corazón con que vivo,
cardo ni ortiga cultivo;
cultivo la rosa blanca.



I cultivate a white rose
In June as in January
For the sincere friend

who shakes my hand frankly.
And for the cruel person
Who would want to break my heart,
I cultivate, neither thistles nor thorns,
I cultivate a white rose.

Recalled this tome since half the age Of title writ upon this page And glided by without a care With youthful pleasures taken there But 50's coming, came the cry Age delayed is age denied. But now, alas, with shortened stride Seventy - new 35.
