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.

    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

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
