Song of the Barren Orange Tree

Tekst: Federico García Lorca

Vertaling: W.S. Merwin

Woodcutter.
Cut my shadow from me.
Free me from the torment
of seeing myself without fruit.
Why was I born among mirrors?
The day walks in circles around me,
and the night copies me
in all its stars.
I want to live without seeing myself,
and I will dream that ants
and thistleburrs are my
leaves and my birds.
Woodcutter.
Cut my shadow from me.
Free me from the torment
of seeing myself without fruit.

Lied van de dorre sinaasappelboom

Houthakker.
Hak mijn schaduw af.
Bevrijd me van de kwelling
mezelf zonder vruchten te zien.
Waarom ben ik geboren tussen spiegels?
