    The impact of Margarita in my childhood

    When I was 5 years old, my aunt read this poem to me. I always remembered the title and the cover; i used to live near the beach and everytime i passed by palm grooves, it reminded me of the story. However, I never found nor saw the book ever again, but I always remembered the story and it gave me confort when the shadows passed my heart. It was five years ago when i finally found it again, and I cried for I had found my treasure. Since then, when even close people in my life sometimes does not believe in my dreams, I always turn to this little book and I believe, that like Margarita, someday soon I'll be able to reach my star. Read it and give it foward; it is very rewarding. Abby Gonzalez 18 yrs. old

    Encouraging adventures, and responsible risks

    This poem has delighted adults and children for over a century. It encourages people, especially little girls, to follow their heart even while obeying the rules. It was written by Ruben Dario for a young girl, Margarita Debayle, who would grow up to be the mother of Nicaraguan dictator Anastacio Somoza Debayle. Thus, the poem has great historical as well as aesthetic value. The book is beautifully illustrated and the pictures reinforceh the erudite vocabulary of the prose.

    When I was about 7 in Nicaragua in a remote town called Rosita M

    When I was about 7 in Nicaragua in a remote town called Rosita Mine, my mom recited this poem to me and told me the story and she did it only once but that one time stayed in my mind all my life, I am 45 and I cherish that memory so much because it was the only time I remember my mother caring about me.. after that as I was growing up, my mother and I had a horrible relationship that til this day we still do.. we don't communicate any mother and I try to stay away from her the most I can, but with that poem, "
    Margarita" I remember that at one time she did have a motherly instinct towards to me and that makes me smile at times... I am from Nicaragua so it is an honor to read Ruben Dario's books.. thanks.
