Federico García Lorca

(5 June 1898 – 19 August 1936 / Fuente Vaqueros)

Las Seis Cuerdas


La guitarra,
hace llorar a los sueños.
El sollozo de las almas
perdidas,
se escapa por su boca
redonda.
Y como la tarántula
teje una gran estrella
para cazar suspiros,
que flotan en su negro
aljibe de madera.

    I've always loved Garcia Lorca's writings.
    He had a marvelous way with words in his native Spanish. (Report) Reply

    The guitar,
    Makes you cry for your dreams.
    The sobs of lost souls,
    escapes from your round mouth.

    And like the trantula
    you weave a huge star-like net
    to catch sighs
    that float from your black
    wooden trap. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
