Homage to Nicaragua

I wrote this poem as a result of my amazing trip to Nicaragua in 1996. My sister Giulietta was working there for Oxfam. Until today, this poem was hidden in a box, in the confines of an attic. Now it has been found, and I immediately knew I had to transform it into a Bookr.

When I wrote the poem in 1996, I had no idea about web 2.0 tools and it was written down on a simple bit of paper, which I kept and then lost. I am not a poet, but Nicaragua got to my soul. I will never forget the power it had over me. Below is my homage to this proud and remarkable country. I used each letter of the country to spell out my feelings. I hope you like it.

It could be me, technofool that i am, but i can't find the poem.

Even with disactivated pop-up control.

Aha!! Could it be that I've called it a poem, but in fact it's simply a collection of sentences?

Hopefully, if you click and drag the bottom right on the "Bookr" page, you should be able to read each page?

Hope this works!!
