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.


Madrigales (Original version)

Como las ondas concéntricas
sobre el agua,
así en mi corazón
tus palabras. 

Como un pájaro que choca
con el viento,
así sobre mis labios
tus besos. 

Como fuentes abiertas
frente a la tarde,
así mis ojos negros
sobre tu carne.

 Madrigals (English translation)

As the concentric waves
on water,
so in my heart
your words.

Like a bird that collides
with the wind,
and on my lips
your kisses.

As open source 
in front of afternoon,
my black eyes
on your flesh.
