Description

Bust in a pyramidal shaped column, with a shield with a poem.

Inscription(s)

A
CROSITA

1954

Cuando una canaria quiere
a quien la sabe querer,
de tanto querer se muere
y muestra quiere también

Todas las canarias son
como ese Teide gigante,
mucha nieve en el semblante
y fuego en el corazón
When a Canarian woman loves
someone who knows how to love her,
she dies of so much love and
shows that she also loves

All the Canarians are
like that giant Teide,
lots of snow on the face
and fire in the heart
