Text & Translation

Es corredor (arr. Viardot)
Spanish source: Manuel Vicente del Pópulo García

¡Este sí, que es corredor!
¡Este sí, que los otros no!
Ha de espantar las estrellas
Con maravillas estrañas,
Que alfin es hombre de cañas
Por parecer hecho de ellas.
Todos le siguen las huellas,
Y el vuela como un azor.

He is a runner
English translation © Lorena Paz Nieto

This one yes, the others are not!
He is going to scare the stars away
with strange wonders,
For he is captivating
and he is as tall and strong as the reeds.
Everyone follows in his footsteps,
and he flies like a hawk.
