Qué lindo,
vengan a ver qué lindo:
en medio de la calle ha caído una estrella;
y un hombre enmascarado
por ver qué tiene adentro se está quemando en ella...

Vengan a ver qué lindo:
en medio de la calle ha caído una estrella;
y la gente, asombrada,
le ha formado una rueda
para verla morir entre sus deslumbrantes
boqueadas celestes.

Estoy frente a un prodigio
- a ver quine me lo niega -
en medio de la calle
ha caído una estrella.
How lovely,
come see how lovely:
in the street a star has fallen;
and a masked man
to see what inside her is burning ...

Come see how lovely:
in the street a star has fallen,
and the people, astonished,
have formed a circle
to watch her die amid dazzling
celestial gasps.

I am before a miracle
- who dares deny it -
in the middle of the street
a star has fallen.


-- Fernán Silva Valdés, "Estrella"


I understand that this is about a man who repairs roads.
