Love of country

A plaque (click to enlarge) near the Plaza de Armas quoting the matancera poet Carilda Oliver Labra:

When my grandmother came
She brought a bit of Spanish soil
When my mother left
She took a bit of Cuban soil
I won’t take any bit of my country with me
I want it all
On top of my grave.
