Juan de Mariana, a Poem


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
