(5 June 1898 – 19 August 1936 / Fuente Vaqueros)

Adam

A tree of blood soaks the morning
where the newborn woman groans.
Her voice leaves glass in the wound
and on the panes, a diagram of bone.

The coming light establishes and wins
white limits of a fable that forgets
the tumult of veins in flight
toward the dim cool of the apple.

Adam dreams in the fever of the clay
of a child who comes galloping
through the double pulse of his cheek.

But a dark other Adam is dreaming
a neuter moon of seedless stone
where the child of light will burn.

surrealism goes right back to the start
A very unique description of Adam! Lorca's poetry has amazing imagery and metaphors, surrealistically reaching out of the usual.Surprising beauty that goes far beyond the norm. He is by far, the greatest Spanish poet of the 20th century and in my candid opinion, one of the best, it not the finest Poet and Playwright, Spain ever had. You might enjoy his Romancero Gitano where his native, Andalucia plays a deep and poignant part, a true and unforgettable taste of Spanish poetic art.
Of the Apple! ! ! ! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail. +_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+.. www.GeoSalary.com
