Pequeño soldado, my true north,
You orient my world and set it forth;
Whenever my hope is gone,
I think of you and march on!

Pequeño soldado, my guiding light,
You taught me love and how to fight;
To me you know just what to say,
You never have too little to give away.

Pequeño soldado, my inspiration,
You're spoken of from nation to nation;
Who would've thought that a little boy
Could wield power so lightly from joy?

Pequeño soldado, you will be known
For freeing hearts when you have grown;
For now your skills you will refine
By practising them on freeing mine!

Hi my friend. What is the story on this poem? - I am intrigued. AS soon as you let me know - then I'll gush! ;)

Hello there Ken!

This one is inspired by a little boy of 10 from Colombia who I've been writing letters with for a few years. I try to versify his influence on me and have just dispatched him a copy of the poem which hopefully will get translated before it reaches him.

Grammar bad
And I just realize that in Spanish most adjectives come after the nouns... so I've actually come across as saying "Soldier Little" (though there was indeed a Stuart Little)!

...the joys of learning a foreign language.
