Federico García Lorca

The guitar

(La Guitarra)

 

Spanish literature, poetry

full text, translation into English

 

 

 

The weeping of the guitar

begins.

The goblets of dawn

are smashed.

 

The weeping of the guitar

begins.

Useless to silence it.

Impossible to silence it.

 

 

It weeps monotonously

as water weeps,

as the wind weeps

over snowfields.

 

Impossible to silence it.

It weeps for distant things.

 

Hot southern sands

yearning for white camellias.

 

Weeps arrow without target

evening without morning,

and the first dead bird

on the branch.

 

Oh, guitar!

Heart mortally wounded

by five swords.

..
