    I'm a fan of Lorca as well and new to the site. Is there a way to request a poem be added?

    Can anyone tell me the name of Federico Lorca's poem which contains the words tell my friends that I am dead.....I am wrapped in that blue ground that is the my... Or something similar.

    Many thanks

    For the most unforgettable and exquisite verse by the great Lorca you can't go past 'Sonnet', published here in Spanish as 'Soneto'.

    Lorca is one of my favorites.He really can cast a magical spell on us! And the moon comes back again and again in his lines! What a bliss he offers the reader!

    A real artist - and I wish more of his works were available on this site - with or without translation.

    Garcia Lorca spoke for poetic and human liberty - but opponents of human liberty might have murdered him in any age, including our own.

    I'm serious - Falangism is a state of mind, in which all artists are at risk.

Before the Dawn

But like love
the archers
are blind

Upon the green night,
the piercing saetas
leave traces of warm
lily.

The keel of the moon
breaks through purple clouds
and their quivers
fill with dew.

Ay, but like love
the archers
are blind!
