| My land was as strong
as a palace,|
Clean, calm, comfortable, quiet,
With a gentleness made up for years
And with an awakening written on stone,
It is precisely there where man is given
Hunger in exchange for wealth and
he gives metals for barter of misery.
Plaza of Oficina José Francisco Vergara, restored and relocated
in the Campus of Universidad de Antofagasta (Antofagasta).
| ... It is the emphasis of the loneliness
of this land,
where the stones are like a dry and timid sob.
Only one personage can measure it completely,
Without its eyes turning into two sockets
Of awe: the sun
