GRANADA

Granada, Elvira Street, where the manolas live, who go to the Alhambra in threes and fours, alone. One is dressed in green, the other in mauve, the third wears a Scotch bodice with ribbons to the train. The two in front are herons, the one behind, a dove; along the poplar lane they open mysterious muslins. Ay, how dark is the Alhambra! Where will the Manolas go while the fountain and the rose suffer in the shade? Which lovers will expect them? Under which myrtle will they rest? Whose hands will steal the perfume from their two round flowers?

No one goes with them, no one; two herons and a dove. But there are gallants in the world who hide behind leaves. The cathedral has left bronzes which the breeze takes up. The Genil sleeps his oxen, and the Dauro his butterflies. The night arrives laden with its hills of shadow; one shows her shoes between the silk lace flounces, the older opens wide her eyes, and the younger half-closes hers. Who will they be, those three, with high breasts and long trains? Why do they wave their handkerchiefs? Where will they go at these hours? Granada, Elvira Street, where the Manolas live, who go to the Alhambra, in threes and fours, alone.
