What better way to begin the year that with a singing to the friendship.
For it there does not occur to me anything better than to appeal a big personage in the Spanish literature: Juan Ramón Jiménez. Juan Ramón was born in Huelva in 1881 and died in Saint John of Puerto Rico in 1958. As many other artists he had to go into exile owing to the Civil war that began in Spain in 1936. It was a Nobel Prize of Literature in 1956.
One of its most well-known works Silversmith and it is me who is (Andalusian elegy). Silversmith and I it is a lyric story that Silversmith recreates poetically the life and death of the donkey. It was published for the first time in 1914.
In its singing XLIII speech of this confidence and disinterested affection between the persons that is the friendship.
We understand each other well.
I do not allow it to go at his pleasure, and he always takes me where I want.
Silversmith knows that, on having come to the pine of the Crown, I like approaching its trunk and it being caressing, and looking at the sky crossways of its enormous and clear glass: he knows that I am delighted by the veredilla that goes, between lawns, to the old Source; that a holiday is for me to see the river from the hill of the pines, evocative, with its high coppice, of classic places. Since I dozed, surely, on him, my awakening is always opened for one of such kind spectacles.
I treat Silversmith who if I was a child. If the way becomes craggy and weighs him a little, me low for to relieve it. I kiss it, cheat it, make it be furious …
He understands well that I want it, and has not a grudge against me. It is so equal to me so different from the others, that I have gone so far as to believe that he dreams my own sleep.
Silversmith me has given up like a passionate adolescent. About nothing he protests. I know that I am its happiness. He even flees of the donkeys and of the men …
Mistakenly Silversmith and I he has been framed in infantile literature but as his own author said: "I have never written I will not even write anything for children, because I believe that the child can read the books that the man reads, with certain exceptions that him occur to all».
So from estás I invite lines to you to a Silversmith's new reading and I and to during this year to do all the possible from maintaining this treasure that we have that they are not different that ours amig@s.
I leave to you a linkage where you can unburden yourselves in pdf the work Silversmith and I.
