about

La Guitarra
By Federico García Lorca

Empieza el llanto
de la guitarra.
Se rompen las copas
de la madrugada.
Empieza el llanto
de la guitarra.
Es inútil
callarla.
Es imposible
callarla.
Llora monótona
como llora el agua,
como llora el viento
sobre la nevada.
Es imposible
callarla.
Llora por cosas
lejanas.
Arena del Sur caliente
que pide camelias blancas.
Llora flecha sin blanco,
la tarde sin mañana,
y el primer pájaro muerto
sobre la rama.
¡Oh guitarra!
Corazón malherido
por cinco espadas.

***

The weeping of the guitar
begins.
The glasses of dawn
are smashed.
The weeping of the guitar
begins.
Useless
to silence it.
Impossible
to silence it.
It weeps a monotone
as water weeps
as the wind weeps
over snowfields.
Impossible
to silence it.
It weeps for things
Far away.
Hot southern sands
yearning for white camellias.
Weeps arrow without target
evening without morning
and the first bird dead
on the branch.
Oh, guitar!
Heart mortally wounded
by five swords.
