Paul Blackburn - Federico García Lorca


Es Verdad
Spanish Text

      Ai, what work it costs me,
      wanting you like I want you!

      All on account of your love
the air
hurts me —
my heart,
even my hat.

        Who will buy it for me,
this hatband I'm holding,
and this sorrow of linen,
white to make handkerchiefs?

        Ai! what work it costs me,
wanting you like I want you.
