Life is the breeze that sweeps the meadows;

Warm kisses on the lips are playing
as we awake to mother's face:

THANK YOU :) The meaning of the song of maria clara to me is love for country. Same as for the society, we must learn how to appreciate our country and we must drop the colonial mentality and treasure and support our own. the song of maria clara is a strange and sad poem, where in the last stanza reveals the premonition of what Rizal will end up to. the thing that we can learn about the society that produced this document is that we, filipinos, are the ones who should love, protect and fight for our country. we should learn to stand in our own and justify ourselves to be worthy to have it.
