Ditty of first d esire

Ditty of First Desire

In the green morning

I wanted to be a heart.

A heart.

And in the ripe evening

I wanted to be a nightingale.

A nightingale.

(Soul,

turn orange-colored.

Soul,

turn the color of love.)

In the vivid morning

I wanted to be myself.

A heart.

And at the evening's end

I wanted to be my voice.

A nightingale.

Soul,

turn orange-colored.

Soul,

turn the color of love.

En la mañana verde,quería ser corazón.Corazón.

Y en la tarde maduraquería ser ruiseñor.Ruiseñor.

(Alma,ponte color de naranja.Alma,ponte color de amor)

En la mañana viva,yo quería ser yo.Corazón.

Y en la tarde caídaquería ser mi voz.Ruiseñor.

¡Alma,ponte color naranja!¡Alma,ponte color de amor!

  • Heart- love, strong, life

  • Nightingale- animal, bird, free of barriers

  • Connections to the soul

  • The heart wants to be heard
