this split second of sweet sovereign Catalonia

Dolça Catalunya,
pàtria del meu cor,
quan de tu s’allunya
d’enyorança es mor.
Adéu, germans;
adéu-siau, mon pare,
no us veuré més!
Oh, si al fossar
on jau ma dolça mare
jo el llit tingués!
el vent que me’n desterra,
que em fa sofrir!
Estic malalt, més ai!,
torneu-me a terra,
que hi vull morir!

Stanzas 1 and 3 of ‘L’emigrant’ by Mossèn Jacint Verdgauer, 1888
Translation by David Block below:

Sweet Catalonia.
Homeland of my heart,
to be far from you
is to die of longing.
Good-bye, brothers and sisters;
farewell, my father,
I shan’t see you again!
Oh, if in the graveyard
where my sweet mother lies
I had my bed!
Oh mariners,
the wind that banishes me,
that makes me suffer!
I am sick, and more!,
return me to land,
for I want to die there!

  1. NetBet Vegas, as an example, is dominated largely by Playtech's slots. If you might be} on the lookout for the brand new} Kingdoms Rise slot collection or the Age of the Gods-themed Age of the 온라인 카지노 Gods, then that is the place to go. They have issued hefty fines for on line casino operators who haven't adopted the foundations. It is worth noting, that trusted casinos are licensed by different jurisdictions such as the Swedish Gambling Authority or the Malta Gaming Authority. Look for hyperlinks and logos at the bottom of any on line casino web site. Vice Magazine discovered numerous tales of men who opened secret checking accounts and opened new bank cards just to keep their playing addiction hidden from their families.
