Aínda teño a esperanza (I still have hope)

Lyrics: Manuel María (from the book “Versos do lume e o vagalume”, 1982)

Manuel María writes a beautiful poetry that includes one of the desires most pursued by many artists today. I myself still have the hope of being able to visit all the parishes of Galicia one by one so that they can get to know my music.

Aínda teño a esperanza de poderI still have hope that I can
percorrer unha por unhawalk one by one
todas as parroquias de Galiza,all the parishes of Galicia,
lugares e casais,places and manor houses,
andar porta por porta,go door to door,
dialogar persoa a persoatalk person to person
face a face,face to face,
pois non hai tarefa máis urxente,because there is no more urgent task,
fermosa, nidia e necesaria.beautiful, clear and necessary.
Gastarei o meu corpo nos camiñosI will spend my body and the paths
ata ser po, seixo e silveira.to be dust, pebble and briar.
A miña voz, de tan usada, seráMy voice, so used, will be
o levísimo eco dun rumor:the slightest echo of a rumor:
só fundamento de sementeseed foundation only
que apenas poderá rozarthat it can barely touch
a intimidade choída dos galegos,the closed intimacy of the Galicians,
estraña tribo incomprensíbelstrange incomprehensible tribe
feita de tebra, vento e cantería.made of darkness, wind and stonework.
