Federico Lorca’s 1929 poem

as found in

Luis Bunuel’s My Last Sigh:


Cielo azul

Campo amarillo

Monte azul

Campo amarillo

Por la llanura desierta

Va caminando un olivo

Un solo

Olivo.


Blue sky

Yellow field

Blue mountain

Yellow field

On the empty plain

Waves an olive tree

Just one

Olive tree.
