It adapts the poem “Gacela de la huida” by Federico García Lorca, which is integrated with the Alhambra image. Poem by Federico García Lorca. “Gacela de la huida”.

I've been lost many times at sea

with an earful of freshly-cut flowers,

with a mouthful of love and agony.

Many times I've been lost at sea,

just as I get lost in the hearts of children.

There is nobody who can kiss 

without feeling the smile of the faceless, 

there is nobody who can touch a newborn

without forgetting the unmoving skulls of horses.

Because roses search the forehead 

for a harsh and bony landscape,

and man’s hands have no meaning 

but to emulate roots beneath the ground.

Just as I get lost in the hearts of children,

I’ve been lost many times at sea.

Ignorant of the water, I continue to seek

a shining death that will consume me.
