From the Publisher

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

- Frederico García Lorca

The Six Strings
The guitar
makes dreams weep.
The sobs of lost
escape through its round
And like the tarantula,
it weaves a large star
to trap the sighs
floating in its black
wooden cistern.

Translated by Cola Franzen
