A Song from Old Spain
By Alice Corbin
From “New Mexico Songs”

WHAT song of mine will live?
On whose lips will the words be sung
Long years after I am forgotten—
A name blown between the hills
Where some goat-herd        5
Remembers my love and passion?
He will sing of your beauty and my love,
Though it may be in another tongue,
To a strange tune,
In a country beyond the seas—        10
A seed blown by the wind—
He will sing of our love and passion.
