Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
La muerte
entra y sale 
de la taberna. 
Pasan caballos negros
y gente siniestra 
por los hondos caminos
de la guitarra. 
Y hay un olor a sal
y a sangre [de hembra]1,
en los nardos febriles
de la marina.
La muerte 
entra y sale
y sale y entra
la muerte
de la taberna.

G. Crumb sets lines 1-3

Малагенья
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Смерть 
вошла и ушла 
из таверны.
Черные кони 
и темные души
В ущельях 
гитаны бродят.
Запахли солью 
и жаркой кровью
Соцветья зыби нервной.
А смерть 
все выходит и входит
И все не уйдот 
из таверны.
