Agosto, contraponientes de melocotón y azúcar.

Wednesday, 1 August 2012 @09:10

"Agosto.
Contraponientes
de melocotón y azúcar,
y el sol dentro de la tarde,
como el hueso en una fruta.
La panocha guarda intacta
su risa amarilla y dura.
Agosto.
Los niños comen
pan moreno y rica luna".
(Federico García Lorca)

And I like it even in english, with those sunsets of peaches and sugar:

"August.
Facing the sunset
peaches and sugar,
and the sun inside the evening
like the stone in a fruit.
The ear of corn holds intact
its hard yellow laughter.
August.
Children eat
dark bread and delicious moon."

Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!

I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
