AZUCENA

Scene One

Una joven campesina esta lavando ropa en un lavadero de piedra

cerca de donde corre agua en el patio de una casa hecha de adobe.

A young country girl is washing clothes on a rough rock near

where water runs, in the dusty yard of an adobe brick cottage.

Los golpes de la ropa contra la piedra se oye repetidamente,

golpeando, raspando y salpicando con el vigor del lavado.

The slap slap slap of the wet cloth smacks against the stone,

splashing, scraping, and rasping with the vigorous scrubbing.

Los movimientos del lavado son repetidos, fluidos, naturales;

mientras ella azota la ropa mojada con sus gestos expresivos.

The watery washing motions are repeated, fluid, natural;

she beats the damp clothing down with expressive gesture.

Después de unos momentos, siguiendo el ritmo de su trabajo,

suavemente entona una canción de la radio de un amor perdido.

After a few moments, in tune with the rhythm of her work,

she softly sings aloud a poignant radio song of lost love.

La tonada le sale, manteniendo la melodía a la perfección;

el sonido esta lleno de autoconcentración y la soledad íntima.

The melody comes from her as she holds the tune perfectly;

in the sound is self-concentration, and intimate solitude.

Ella esta cantando para ella misma y para nadie más;

incansablemente, ella continúa lavando un pantalón.

She is singing to herself, to nobody else;

tirelessly, she is scrubbing clean the pants.
