Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. If you can find the poem Declaración, I'll be glad to translate it for you but searching for an hour, I couldn't even find it online!
I, I left Cuba still a girl,
I have exactly
half of my life in exile,
I have a husband with his own business,
two daughters born in the United States,
a house in the suburbs
(mortgaged to the roof)
And I do not know how many credit cards.
I, who speak the English almost without accent,
that I love Walt Whitman
and until I begin to endure the winter,
I declare, today last Monday of September,
that as soon as I can leave everything
and return to Cuba.
I further declare that I will not take
revenge on anyone,
nor recover property,
nor, like many, that is why I
bathe in Varadero.
I will return, simply
because I am
owed to Cuba.
