Aires, May 10, 1884. Adolescent, without money in his pockets, he
arrived to Buenos Aires in search of more promissory horizons that
those that could offer him the native field, and he acted as warehouse
clerk, bricklayer, milkman's peon, worker in a factory of footwears
and in the foundry Vasena. In short, an infinity of employments that
allowed him to gather with great effort the sum for the first piano
that he could buy.

Theme: it is a small lyrical poem, a kind of bolero.

Dreamer, I go on pilgrimage,
to sing,
I want my fantasy
and the mad poetry
that there is in my heart!
Full with love and happiness,
I will overturn my song;
I always felt the sweet illusion
of being living my passion.
Although I don't live all that a dream
I dream all that I sing,
for that reason my charm is the love;
my poor bohemian soul
wants to caress
and like a flower to perfume.
And in my painly nights
to speak
I go with the stars,
and the most beautiful things
awake I know how to dream.
Because I trust them
all my thirst of loving.
I felt always
the sweet illusion
of being living
my passion.
I look for in the celestial eyes
and in beautifull black hairs;
sincere passions,
sweet emotion.
And in my eternal wandering life
full with illusion,
I want to give everything,
Even my heart.
