'Mi Pueblito Perdito' was based on diary notes dating from the 28th of August 2014, and while it twice came close to being jettisoned from this collection, it was ultimately included as a result of being edited and re-titled in July/August 2017. Image from Autumn 2014.

Mi Pueblito Perdido

O how

Ruefully I pine

For mi pueblito perdido,

What I wouldn’t give,

To be young again,

And happy as I was back then.

Maria, full of peace,

Do you remember

Francis Albert softly keening

O Amor Em Paz,

And other songs by Jobim,

Happy as you were back then?

O for

That wide-eyed

Impression of yours,

Paquita (la de Murcia),

Of your beloved Mary Lyn,

Happy as you were back then.

O how

Ruefully I pine

For mi pueblito perdido,

What I wouldn’t give,

To be young again,

And happy as I was back then.
