Abstract of dramatic work Lorca about 20 poems of the book "Suites", from Andalusian poet Federico García Lorca, on the occasion of commemorating the centenary of his birth in 1998.

I made two versions about this work.

Historietas del viento (original version)

La brisa
es ondulada
como los cabellos
de algunas muchachas.
Como los marecitos
de algunas viejas tablas.
La brisa
brota como el agua,
y se derrama
-tenue bálsamo blanco-
por las cañadas,
y se desmaya
al chocar con lo duro
de la montaña.

 Wind cartoons (English translation)

The breeze
is wavy
as the hair
of some girls.
As little seas
of some old boards.
The breeze
flows like water,
and spills
-soft white balsam-
through the glens,
and faints
when hitting it hard
of the mountain.
