Thank you very much dear friends of the voice for supporting my work, surfing the web I cross with this beautiful legend that speaks of a young man who falls in love with everything for his love, is that situation will happen something really beautiful, a nice story that begins like this.
In the land without evil of the Guarani lived the most beautiful of all the beautiful girl that could exist, an incredibly beautiful pupil, velvety pink skin, perfect nose, with indescribable features, accompanied by beautiful purple lips, soft as corolla Flores, the best work of art personified in woman, with a black hair, decorated with crowns of Flowers.
Love at first sight felt his mother at birth, seeing the baptism precisely as Florcita, never was also put a name.
Florcita was a lover of the jungle, a true passion for flowers and wild fruits, every day all day, she wandered through the forest, a friend of nature, she knew every flower plant, the birds were challenged Who would dedicate the best song to the beautiful, the animals walked behind her to contemplate its figure, the butterflies circled around its walk, a myriad of colors produced in contrast to the green jungle.
The girl goes out to give her morning walk without knowing that that day would change her life forever, the spring had arrived, the thicket was at its best, walked the red dirt roads giving smiles, dazzled at every step with its beauty, In her walk a bee placed on her crown of flowers and whispered a few words, Florcita skillful understood the dialect of the animals, understood what the bee told him, looked up at the sky looking at the treetops and there he could see in The top of the tree to an athletic young man, he dedicated himself to harvest the nectar of honey of bees, very coveted food of the indigenous Guarani.
Mitai as the young Indian was called, when Florcita came down from the trees, came to greet the beautiful lady, surprised she was petrified of fright, but more of the beauty of Mitai, he noticed the girl's fright, With a gentle and sweet voice asked him to calm down and was not afraid, possessor of a wide smile captive the attention of the beautiful woman.
They started a conversation as old acquaintances, as do friends of childhood, they talked about everything and did not deprive themselves of asking anything, in the conversation she realized that this young man belonged to a rival village of his father's lifetime. The enmity was so old that they did not remember what the inconvenience was, but to name this family was to bring bad memories.
This discovery saddened the young people, but still desirous of prospering this love continued to be seen in secret, these young people were seen daily on occasion to forget who they were, the beauty of the forest makes forget the worst memories, so the days passed, Discovering together the beauty of the forest, ready to witness a true love, they knew every corner of the jungle, its fauna, its flowers, its streams and all the sloping waters of the place, a magical place loyal to these lovers, They spent many days together that forgot to be careful, this reached the ears of the leaders, unbelievers of this love were not keen to discern this love and still less able to see that love overcomes the rancor.
The elders took the decision, however, to be taken in a situation of this nature, to separate young lovers, Florcita had to choose another man from her village, it did not matter if she did not love, the most powerful and beautiful warrior of the village was chosen, Florcita asked, implored by her true love, Florcita's parents immune to the supplications, it is said that there is no deaf worse than she does not want to hear, the beautiful girl only to cry all day, stop eating in defiance of her parents , He would have anything but to be with a man whom he does not love, so much was the plea, so much was the lamentation, that not even the God of the Guarani Tupã Tenondete could bear, kind and contemplative izo Florcita to take root of his feet, his Arms grew a delicate and delicate branches, from his beautiful head grew a beautiful treetop, from his fingers appeared a beautiful flower blossoms, in honor of his name turned it into a beautiful tree full of majestic Flo beef.
Mitai knew nothing of Florcita, stopped eating, walked all day in the jungle in search of Florcita, cried in despair, implored the return of her love, asked the Tupa to remove that pain, Mitai was reluctant to leave in the I forget the love you promised.
Mitai went to the enchanted jump to take his life, the God of the Guarani Tupã Tenondete understood that this love was true, under the jungle and talk to the young man, told him that Florcita allowed him to live forever on earth as in Beautiful plant in Florcita, which has opened its buds dropping its seeds, the wind did their thing spread the seeds throughout the forest and are growing hundreds of trees Florals, unfortunately could not know which tree was Florcita, but if you love it so much I'll give you the gift so you can look for it, the young man willing to find his love accepted if he hesitates.
The tupa turned him into a small hummingbird, gave him the most beautiful feathers that could exist, at that very moment he flew swiftly from Flower to Flower, with his fine beak to test the nectar of each Florcita in order to find Florcita his beautiful beloved.
That is why today we see the hummingbird flying very Mita proving Florcita in Florcita his nectar looking for his beautiful Florcita, fulfilling his promise never forget his beloved.
