‘Farewell’ by Frederico Garcia Lorca [Trans. Merryn Williams]

If I die,
leave the balcony open.

The child is eating oranges.
(From my balcony I see him.)

The harvester scythes the wheat.
(From my balcony I hear him.)

If I die,
leave the balcony open!

  1. Well no, I was just flicking through one of his books and found this, which I liked.

    I guess the poem’s you *like* are often gonna bear some similarity with the poems you *write*, but I can’t say that I’ve read much Lorca. This one’s nice tho.
