To Maria E. Mendez
Three roses I arrange
In a little vase made of crystal
Following the wise advice of my spiritual guide.
The three roses represent Faith, Hope and Love,
Virtues that I must always cultivate
To have peace, love and happiness in my life.
And so that I will not forget
In my daily struggle,
A white rose, a yellow one , and a pink rose
I arrange in a vase made of crystal,
The advice of my spiritual guide.
