Cazador

de Federico García Lorca

¡Alto pinar!
Cuatro palomas por el aire van.
Cuatro palomas
vuelan y tornan.
Llevan heridas
sus cuatro sombras.
¡Bajo pinar!
Cuatro palomas en la tierra están.

I´m sorry. I have done a recording wrong and I don't know how to erase it. I hope the correct recording is useful for you.

¡Muchas gracias! (No pienso en aprender Euskara, pero ¿puedes graber esta poema de Joseba Sarrionandia?

Sartaldeko oihanetan gatibaturik
erromara ekarri zinduten, esklabua,
erremintari ofizioa eman zizuten
eta kateak egiten dituzu.
Labetik ateratzen duzun burdin goria
nahieran molda zenezake,
ezpatak egin ditzakezu
zure herritarrek kateak hauts deitzaten,
baina zuk, esklabu horrek,
kateak egiten dituzu, kate gehiago.

Voy a poner el audio en esta página. Probablemente lo titulará otra vez como "Cazador", pero no sé hacerlo de otra manera. Gracias por tu detalle.

Thanks again, you have a lovely voice. I think it's really cool that a non-Indo-European language has survived while being surrounded by Latin, French, and Spanish speakers. The grammar looks incredibly difficult judging from Wikipedia: "A Basque noun-phrase is inflected in 17 different ways for case, multiplied by 4 ways for its definiteness and number. These first 68 forms are further modified based on other parts of the sentence, which in turn are inflected for the noun again."

It's incredible that you're interested in such a language while you are 15 years old. Lots of people here don't take into account this language, it's barely spoken. I showed it to my daughters like it was a treasure.
My daughter is studying for the advanced in English and maybe she'll ask for your help some day (not vey far).
Thanks for your interest.
