Juan de Mariana, a Poem



Mariana

To my friends everything, To my enemies the law

Proclaimed the ruler

 

To my King loyalty, To the Tyrant death

Answered the courageous priest

 

The school of power gave us dark

The school of spirit gave us light

 

Silence in the monastery, Studies in the academy

Nurtured his mind

The hills and air of Toledo

His disciplined soul
