Enjoy the poem I Dream Awake (Sueno Despierto) by Jose Marti, from the collection, Ismaelillo, published in 1882.

I Dream Awake (Sueno Despierto)

Day and night
I always dream with open eyes
And on top of the foaming waves
Of the wide turbulent sea,
And on the rolling
Desert sands,
And merrily riding on the gentle neck
Of a mighty lion,
Monarch of my heart,
I always see a floating child
Who is calling me!
