We spoke with Cástulo Gregorisch about his poetry.  Castulo has written over 600 poems about Cuban his immigrant experience.  They are beautiful and emotional.

Let me share "Aquella triste manana":  



Aquella triste mañana de Cuba me despedía,

Aquella triste mañana de su regazo partía.

Aquella triste mañana mi alma se deshacía,

Aquella triste mañana de carbón y de cenizas.

Aquella triste mañana de mi tierra yo me iba,

Aquella triste mañana sin saber si volvería.
Aquella triste mañana una muy triste en mi vida,
Aquella triste mañana la que nunca olvidaría.
Aquella triste mañana a tierra extraña me iría,
Aquella triste mañana huyendo de la injusticia.
Aquella triste mañana con mi esposa y con mi hija,
Aquella triste mañana nuestros padres no venían.
Aquella triste mañana dolorosa en demasía,
Aquella triste mañana no creo la merecía.
Aquella triste mañana marcada quedó en mi vida,
Aquella triste mañana clavada como una espina.
