Venga la esperanza

Venga la esperanza by Rudy Girón

Silvio Rodríguez gives voice to a wish, a request, a demand really.

Venga la esperanza, Hope come now, sunshine come to me, frost go away, hummingbird come back, let the sails swell, the engine roar, without hope, where love goes?

Venga la esperanza,
venga sol a mí.
Lárguese la escarcha,
vuele el colibrí.
Hínchese la vela,
ruja el motor,
que sin esperanza
¿dónde va el amor?
.
.
.
Cuando niño yo saque la cuenta
de mi edad por el año dos mil
(el dos mil sonaba como puerta abierta
a maravillas que silbaba el porvenir).
.
.
.
Venga la esperanza,
pase por aquí.
Venga de cuarenta,
venga de dos mil.
Venga la esperanza
de cualquier color:
verde, roja o negra,
pero con amor.

Even more hidden treasures

A few days ago we talked about the hidden treasures that people seem to ignore in Guatemala City.

Do you know where is this callejón and what treasure is inside? you are in charge of giving the answer or provide clues, good luck 😉
