Mi Isla. Mi Tierra. Mi Puerto Rico.



Mi isla del encanto,

el lugar que siempre extraño.

Con gente tan peculiar,

pero tan familiar.

Lleno de vistas súper bellas.

Hecho de historias de novelas.

Bomba, plena, y salsa.

Africanos, taínos, españoles.

Tostones, pernil, y malta.

Leal, bochinchosos, jorobónes.

Así es mi tierra,

Mi tierra Borinqueña.
