Las Seis Cuerdas, the six chords


La guitarra,
hace llorar a los sueños.
El sollozo de las almas perdidas,
se escapa por su boca redonda.
Y como la tarántula
teje una gran estrella
para cazar suspiros,
que flotan en su negro
aljibe de madera.
The guitar,
makes us cry for those dreams.
The sobbing of souls lost,
which escape his round mouth
And like a tarantula
weaves a beautiful canvas
to chase the sighs,
floating in the black
cistern of wood.
