Federico García Lorca

(5 June 1898 – 19 August 1936 / Fuente Vaqueros)

El Balcón


Si muero
Dejad el balcón abierto

El niño come naranjas
(Desde mi balcón lo veo)

El segador siega el trigo
(Desde mi balcón lo siento)

Si muero
Dejad el balcón abierto

    My copy of Garcia Lorca's works - lost in a flood, long ago.

    Por favor,

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
