Can you hear the birds singing?

by Lucio Muñoz

While in the park the day she agreed to be his bride,

Smiling, with pride,

She told him “My spring,

Can you hear the birds singing?,

I love them.”

While in the church’s garden the day of their wedding,

Joking, with lot of caring,

She told him “My golden ring,

Can you hear the birds singing?,

I adore them.”

While in their backyard now old and knowing she was about to die,

Laughing, cutting the pie,

She told him “My king,

Can you hear the birds singing?,

I will miss them.”
