Margarita is beautiful the sea,
and the wind, carries subtle essence of orange blossom;
I feel in the soul a lark to sing;
Daisy, I'll tell you a story
* * *
This was a
king who had a palace of diamonds,
a tent made by day
and a flock of elephants,
a malachite kiosk, gran a large tissue mantle,
and a gentle
so pretty, Margarita,as pretty, as you are.
One afternoon, the princess
saw a star
the princess was naughty
and wanted to go catch.
I wanted to make it
decorate a pin
with a verse and a pearl
and a feather and a flower. PrimBeautiful princesses
look a lot like you:
cut lilies, cut roses,
. They are like that.
Well the beautiful girl went,
under the sky and over the sea,to
cut the white star
that made her sigh.
And he continued on his way up, by the moon and beyond;
More bad is that she was going
without permission from dad
When she was already back
from the parks of the Lord,she looked all wrapped up
And the king said: "What have you done to yourself?
I have looked for you and I have not found you; and what do you have in your chest?
What is it on you?"? "
The princess was not lying.
And so, he said the truth:
"I went to cut the star of mine to theblue immensity
And the king cries out: "I have not told you
that the blue should not be cut?
What madness! What a freak! ... TheLord
is going to get angry
And she says: "There was no attempt;
I left I do not know why. Because of the waves by the windI went to the star and cut it off".
And the dad says angry:
"A punishment you must have:
go back to heaven and stolen it you are going to return now".
The princess becomes sad
for her sweet
flower of light,
when then appears
smiling the Good Jesus. Así
And so he says: "In my fields
that rose I offered him;
they are my flowers of the girls
that when dreaming think of me".
You saw the king bright bubbles,
and then paraded
elephants to the edge of the sea.
The little princess is beautiful,
she already has the pin
in which they shine, with the star, verse, pearl, feather and flower.
