En el Cementerio
Junto a una cruz, al expirar el dia, una pobre mujer, de angustias llena, sus lagrimas vertia…
Dolio a mi corazón su amarga pena, y ante el sepulcro de la madre ajena llore la muerte de la madre mia.
Antonio Pellerano Castro (Byron)

Criolla. A Ti
Yo quisiera, mi vida, ser burro,
ser burro de carga,
y llevarte en mi lomo a la fuente,
en busca del agua
Con que riega tu madre el conuco,
con que tu, mi trigueña, te bañas.
Yo quisiera, mi vida, ser burro,
ser burro de carga,
y llevar al mercado tus frutos,
y traer para ti, dentro el argana
el vestido que ciña tu cuerpo,
el pañuelo que cubra tu espalda,
el rosario de cuentas de vidrio
con Cristo de plata,
que cual rojo collar de cerezas
rodee tu garganta…
Yo quisiera, mi vida,

In the Cemetery
Next to a cross, at the end of the day, a poor woman, full of anguish, shedding tears...
My heart was pierced by her bitter sorrow, and before the grave of that other mother, I mourn the death of my own.
Antonio Pellerano Castro (Byron)

To you, Criolla
My life, I would like to be a burro,
to be a beast of burden,
and to take you on my back to the spring,
in search of water
with which your mother waters the garden,
With which you, my brunette, you bathe.
My life, I would like to be a burro,
to be a beast of burden,
and to bring your fruits to the market,
and to bring for you, inside the market bag,
the dress that surrounds your body,
the handkerchief

that covers your back,
the rosary of glass beads
with a silver Christ,
a red necklace of cherries
that surrounds your throat ...
My life, I would like to be a burro,
to be a beast of burden ...
