Penelope

Spanish

Penélope

 

01
Penélope,
con su bolso de piel marrón
y sus zapatos de tacón,
y su vestido de domingo.

02
Penélope,
se sienta en un banco en el andén
y espera que llegue el primer tren
meneando el abanico.

03
Dicen en el pueblo que un caminante paró
su reloj
una tarde de primavera.

04
Adiós, amor mío, no me llores, volveré
antes que de los sauces caigan las hojas...
Piensa en mí, volveré por ti...

05
pobre infeliz,
se paró tu reloj infantil
una tarde plomiza de abril,
cuando se fue tu amante.

06
Se marchitó
en tu huerto hasta la última flor,
no hay ni un sauce en la calle mayor
para penélope.

07
Penélope,
tristes a fuerza de esperar,
tus ojos parecen brillar
si un tren silba a lo lejos.

08
Penélope,
uno tras otro los ve pasar,
mira sus caras, las oye hablar,
para ella son muñecos.

09
Dicen en el pueblo que el caminante volvió,
la encontró en su banco de pino verde.

10
la llamó: "penélope, mi amante fiel, mi paz,
deja ya de tejer sueños en tu mente...
mírame, soy tu amor, regresé..."

11
Le sonrió
con los ojos llenitos de ayer,
no era así su cara ni su piel:
"tú no eres quien yo espero..."

12
Y se quedó
con su bolso de piel marrón
y sus zapatitos de tacón
sentada en la estación

Penelope

Versions: #1#2

01
Penelope
With her brown leather handbag
And her high-heeled shoes
And her dress of Sunday

02
Penelope
She sits on a bench on the platform
And waits for the first train to arrive
Shaking the fan

03
People from the town say that a traveler stopped his watch
In the afternoon of a spring

04
Goodbye, my love, don’t weep for me, I will return
Before the willows fall their leaves
Think of me, I will return for you

05
Poor miserable woman
Your youth stopped
In a leaden afternoon of April
When your lover went away

06
Withered in her garden
Until the last flower
There is not even a willow on the main street
For Penelope

07
Penelope
They are sad after so much waiting
But your eyes seem to glow
If a train whistles in the distance

08
Penelope
One after another she sees them passing
She looks at their faces, She hears them talking
They are dolls for her

09
People from the town say that the traveler returned
He found her on the bench of raw pine

10
He called her : ”Penelope, my faithful lover, my peace
Quit weaving dreams in your mind any longer
Look at me, I am your love, I have returned ”

11
She smiled at him
With eyes full of yesterday
His face and his skin were not like that
"You are not the one I'm waiting for"

12
And she stayed
With her brown leather handbag
And her high-heeled shoes
Sitting in the station

One Sunday morning, there is an old traveler who finds a young woman at the platforms of train in his hometown.
She is very similar to "Penelope" who was his love in youth.
When he was young, he left the town. And he broke up with "Penelope".
He recalls her. And he is looking at the young woman who is waiting for the train.

I am grateful for the teachings of "citruswind".
