Map & Flag of Costa Rica

in whose body I rest,

What will your dream be like
when I have sought you without finding you?

my love, most sweet
as the allusion of a spikenard
between distant brown scents,

What will become of your heart when I love you?

What will it be like to find you when your body is love
and your voice
a bouquet of light?…” 
Eunice Odio

Costa Rican Poet
