Ruben Dario

Welcome the sun. spider, no need for spite.
Give thanks to God, o toad, for your life.
The hairy crab carries rosy thorns
and the mollusk something similar to the female sex.
Learn to be what you are, enigmas, given form
Give up the Norm,
a responsibility, in time, passed to the Divine,
(Play cricket, to the moonshine, and bear, dance.)
Nicaragua, 1905
