Mi Tierra

Javier walked through the deserts
of Arizona in the night

looking for water
Toribio walked in the valley of Texas

drying off slowly
in the cold night

Mando jumped the fence
not far from Tijuana

and each of them is singing
this land is my land

from California
to the New York Island

Hi Reyes,
I like these last poems especially the one about the jaguar. I guess you miss your friend Cecilio very much. So nice it must have been to have had an amigo, fellow poet.
