Friends, companions,
I live in the mountains.
Out there, the enemy;
here, only solitude.

Fighter, combatant,
come this way
Come and rediscover
your loves, and unity.

There have been
years of engagement,
During which
we have planned
this coming together.

I want to see camps
where young girls
Live, one of whom is
insouciant and proud.
