|Memories of My Town |
| |
|When I recall the days |
|That saw my childhood of yore |
|Beside the verdant shore |
|Of a murmuring lagoon; |
|When I remember the sighs |
|Of the breeze that on my brow |
|Sweet and caressing did blow |
|With coolness full of delight; |
| |
|When I look at the lily white |
|Fills up with air violent |
|And the stormy element |
|On the sand doth meekly sleep; |
|When sweet 'toxicating scent |
|From the flowers I inhale |
|Which at the dawn they exhale |
|When at us it begins to peep; |
| |
|I sadly recall your face, |
|Oh precious infancy, |
|That a mother lovingly |
|Did succeed to embellish. |
|I remember a simple town; |
|My cradle, joy and boon, |
|Beside the cool lagoon |
|The seat of all my wish. |
| |
|Oh, yes! With uncertain pace |
|I trod your forest lands, |
|And on your river banks |
|A pleasant fun I found; |
|At your rustic temple I prayed |
|With a little boy's simple faith |
|And your aura's flawless breath |
|Filled my heart with joy profound. |
|Saw I God in the grandeur |
|Of your woods which for centuries stand; |
|Never did I understand |
|In your bosom what sorrows were; |
|While I gazed on your azure sky |
|Neither love nor tenderness |
|Failed me, 'cause my happiness |
|In the heart of nature rests there. |
| |
|Tender childhood, beautiful town, |
|Rich fountain of happiness, |
|Of harmonious melodies, |
|That drive away my sorrow! |
|Return thee to my heart, |
|Bring back my gentle hours |
|As do the birds when the flow'rs |
|Would again begin to blow! |
|But, alas, adieu! E'er watch |
|For your peace, joy and repose, |
|Genius of good who kindly dispose |
|Of his blessings with amour; |
|It's for thee my fervent pray'rs, |
|It's for thee my constant desire |
|Knowledge ever to acquire |
|And may God keep your candour! |

The ability to focus, and channel our concentration into the task at hand, whether its work, reading, or play is more important than ever today. The near constant distractions of the digital age, manifest as ADD, memory lapses, low test scores, mood swings, or senior moments when we cannot find our car keys. The desire to enhance mental alertness is not a new thing, in ancient Greece students would braid rosemary into their hair to help them with their exams.
