Poemas: The street in shadows. [Explicación en Sistema de Signos Internacional] Ficha de la obra

The street in shadows. The high houses hide
the dying sun; there are echoes of light in balconies.
Can’t you see, in the charm of the flowery oriel,
The pink oval of a familiar face?
The image, behind the glass of vague reflection,
emerges or dissipates like an old daguerreotype.
The only sound in the street is the noise of you walking by;
the echoes of twilight slowly fade away.
Oh, anguish! The heart weighs heavy and hurts… Is it her?
It cannot be… Walk on…. In the blue, the star.

Poema de Antonio Machado
