Remedios The Beautiful (Remedios la Bella)

English translation

Remedios The Beautiful

she was born wrapped in a ray of sunshine,
in a flight of golden buterflies ,
her sparkling eyes and silveir hair
that were illuminated the night
the clairvoyant said that * Remedios " the beautiful "
was a gift sent from the sky
after hungry years and bust a gut
to people from Santa Maria
 
La lala lala the sky has brought Remedios the beautiful
La lala lala the sky has caught her and brought her here
 
the time went by , lost in magic potion
and ointments of the gypsy * Melchiade,
birdcages full of birds in the market ,
pancakes and iguana eggs
Remedios The beautiful was walking slowly
like a fallen angel by chance
among tourists ,stranges and the cock- crows
in the supermarket, in Santa Maria
 
La lala lala the sky has brought Remedios the beautiful
La lala lala the sky has caught her and brought her here
 
A ray of light has blinded the Caribbean
and Remedios "The beautiful " flew away
dressed in ragge , blowing up in the wind
and a rain of golden buterflies ,
and people was watching a hole in the sky
while the woman * Esperanza was praying
" There's no place to angels in a spice trade
in the supermarket ,in Santa Maria "
 
La lala lala the sky has brought Remedios the beautiful
La lala lala the sky has caught her and brought her here

Thank you so much for the translation. Remedios is one of my favourite characters from "One Hundred Years of Solitude" Smile
