Canción a la luna lunanca

Canción a la luna lunanca

Al corral del horizonte
Va entrando la nochecita
Está tan aquerenciada
Porque entra todos los días.
Así estoy aquerenciado,
en el corral de tus brazos
y en el fuego de tus ojos
estoy como encandilado.
Noche de luna lunanca,
Noche de cielo estrellado,
Las horas tienen perfume
Y son los besos más largos.
Ha aparecido la luna
Sobre el gran claro del cielo
Abarcando todo el campo,
Como un perfume un pañuelo.
Así apareció una moza
En el tropel de mis días,
Ella para mí es la luna
Que abarca toda mi vida.

Song of the moon of moons

To the enclosure on the horizon
The night is appearing
And the night is so used to it
Because it appears every day.
So too am I used to being
Enclosed in your arms
And by the fire of your eyes
I am dazzled.
Night of this moon of moons,
Night of starry skies,
The hours have a perfume
And are the longest kisses.
The moon has appeared
Above the great clearing in the sky
Spreading over all the land,
Like perfume on a cloth.
In this way a woman appeared
In the tumult of my days,
To me she is the moon
That spreads over all my life.


Alberto Evaristo Ginastera was an Argentian composer.
