Hail the Queen
El resplandor de la penumbra
De camino al olvido
Así muere una casa
Colores de mi terruño
Muro de sol y sed
Rastros de barro y cal
Del sol al silencio
Un viaje a la memoria
A través del trópico
Blanco espejo de la sombra
Como una marca en mi pecho

Hail the Queen

The Victoria Memorial is a large marble building in Kolkata, West Bengal, India, which was built between 1906 and 1921. It is dedicated to the memory of Queen Victoria (1819–1901) and is now a museum and tourist destination under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture. The memorial lies on the Maidan (grounds) by the bank of the Hooghly River, near Jawaharlal Nehru Road (better known as Chowringhee Road).
