lyrics

Canción última

Pintada, no vacía:
pintada está mi casa
del color de las grandes
pasiones y desgracias.

Regresará del llanto
adonde fue llevada
con su desierta mesa,
su ruinosa cama.

Florecerán los besos
sobre las almohadas.

Y en torno de los cuerpos
elevará la sábana
su intensa enredadera
nocturna, perfumada.

El odio se amortigua
detrás de la ventana.

Será la garra suave.

Dejadme la esperanza.

Miguel Hernández
(1910-1942)

LAST SONG

Painted, not vacant, is my house
with the color of the grand passions
and misfortunes
it will come back from weeping
where it was taken
with its deserted table
with its ruinous bed
kisses will bloom on the pillows
and around the bodies
will rise the sheet
its intense vine nightly perfumed
the hatred cushions
behind the window
it will be the soft paw

leave me the hope

Miguel Hernandez
(1910-1942)
