Hermes, Balcons de Guadalquivir, disegno originale dei balconi in ferro battuto che si affacciano sul fiume. Colore rosso arroventato e fiammeggiante
She sits upon her chosen river, the winding loving Guadalquivir
and smiles amid her orange bowers and charms the gay, voluptuous hours
with rebec, dance, guitars unseen, and whispered loves from leafy screen,
or where the balcon’s latticed shade is lit by eyes of blushing maid:
so Saville sits upon her river, the winding, loving, Guadalquivir.
The Alcazar’s sweet mistery, inlacing arch and tracery,
All day the glowing throng allure to aocuts and hallswhere loved the Moor.
Above the roof is shot with stars , and ambers flush the threading bars
which curtained the Sultana’s shrine and golden spaces interwine.
so Seville sits upon her river, the winding, loving, Guadalquivir.
