[Words by Delgado Jos Espronceda 1808-1842]
Y encontr mi illusion desvanecida
Y eterno e insaciable mi deseo:
Palp la realidad y odi la vida.
Solo en la paz de los sepulcros creo.
"And I found my hope had vanished by now
And eternal and insatiable was my desire:
I felt reality and hated life.
I believe only in the peace of sepulchres."
