Canto Libre Victor Jara

Poetry is a dove
that seeks a nesting place.
It bursts and opens its wings
to fly and fly.

My song is a free song
that wants to give itself
to whoever holds out their hand,
to whoever wants to fire.

My song is a chain
with no start or end
and in each link there is
the song of the others.

Let us keep singing together
to all humanity.
Song is a dove
that flies to discover.
It bursts and opens its wings
to fly and fly.
My song is a free song.

Also Victors quote on what love means to him.
Love of my home, my wife and my children./ Love for the earth that helps me live./ Love for education and of work./ Love of others who work for the common good./ Love of justice as the instrument that provides equilibrium for human dignity./ Love of peace in order to enjoy one's life./ Love of freedom, but not the freedom acquired at the expense of others’ freedom, but rather the freedom of all./ Love of freedom to live and exist, for the existence of my children, in my home, in my town, my city, among neighbouring people./ Love for freedom in the environment in which we are required to forge our destiny./ Love of freedom without yokes: nor ours nor foreign.

When asked, four days before the military coup of September 11, 1973, what the word ‘Love’ meant to him.
