04:37 am - Help please
Hi all,

I'll be more than gratefull if you help me to find the original text/name of a poem - I have found it only in Russian translation, and I have no clue when it was written. To make it worse, I'll try to re-translate it in English, as my knowledge of Spanish is very poor... may be someone will be able to understand what that poem actually was...

Hopeless song

The grasses are interlacing
The rivers are interflowing
But I am scattered by the winds.

Anunciation will enter
The houses of fiances,
And maids will wake up
And embroider their hearts
In green silk

But I am scattered by the winds.

Thanks a lot for any help!

Yours,
Annabel

If you still need Russian version then here it is:

БЕЗНАДЕЖНАЯ ПЕСНЯ

Сливаются реки,
свиваются травы,

А я
развеян ветрами.

Войдет благовещенье
в дом к обрученным,
и девушки встанут утрами -
и вышьют сердца свои
шелком зеленым.

А я
развеян ветрами.

пер. А.Гелескула

Lorca's "a half of my life", so I'm very happy to meet somebody like me. Good luck for you!

Russian version was a starting point when I went looking for the original. Thank you for sharing :) It's so pity that this community is sort of asleep...

You may join "ru_lorca" in LJ if Russian is not difficult for you. There are some interested in Federico's works and life.
See you!

And thank you for sharing your comprehension issues and thank you for escalating into name calling.
