Federico García Lorcafrom Poet in Spain
Gacela VIIOf the Memory of Love
Don’t take my memory of youleave it in my heart
trembling white cherry tree January’s martyr
A wall of bad dreams divides me from the dead
I’m as pained as a fresh lily before a plaster heart
All night in the orchard my eyes are like two dogs
All night eating the poison quinces
Sometimes the wind is a tulip of fear
a sick tulipin the winter dawn
A wall of bad dreams divides me from the dead
Silent grass covers your body’s gray valley
On the arch where we meet hemlock is growing
Leave me my memory of you leave it in my heart
