HAVANA, Cuba (CNN) -- A new photo of ailing Communist leader Fidel Castro surfaced on Sunday -- the second in 10 days -- revealing a more healthy-looking man than in prior photos.

Published in Cuba's state-run youth newspaper, Juventud Rebelde, the photo shows Castro, 83, meeting with Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.

6. "I like Fidel Castro and his beard." - Bob Dylan
"Well, I couldn't leave
Unless the old man chased me out,
'Cause I'd already promised
That I'd milk his cows.
I had to say something
To strike him very weird,
So I yelled out,
"I like Fidel Castro and his beard."
Rita looked offended
But she got out of the way,
As he came charging down the stairs
Sayin', "What's that I heard you say?"

From "Motorpsycho Nightmare"
