Paul Goodey - Las seis cuerdas

Article text
Las seis cuerdas (2012) – Paul Goodey


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 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
souls
escape through its round
mouth.
And like the tarantula,
it weaves a large star
to trap the sighs
floating in its black
wooden cistern.
[/i]
Translated by Cola Franzen
