Hertsa

yama-bato:

It smells of rain this townlet, of autumn, and of hay.
Into the lungs winds carry hot sand from far away.
The young girls are waiting on the untidy street
for the return of silence each evening when they meet
and for the deaf and clumsy mailman wearing a hood.
Chased by the rain, the horse carts have gone now home for good
and in all things the lengthy, wet silence becomes mouldy.
At home, the common people speak Yiddish, seldom loudly.
In yellow shoes, geese slowly step behind a wood fence.
One hears the rain that’s turning now off the gas street lamps
and ageing the leaves into brass bells. Now one can hear
the long and ashy silence, the sound of autumn here,
and the Dorokhoy coach’s well known and damped out rattle.
All’s empty: from the valley return the herds of cattle
that moo, their heads turned backwards, as sucking the cloud rows.
red eyed and scarred the townlet all of a sudden lows.
— Benjamin Fondane, transl. from Romanian by Dan Solomon

Benjamin Fondane and the Quartet Aguilar (Paco, Ezequiel, Pepe and Elisa Aguilar), Buenos Aires 1936 -nd[Cuarteto de laúdes Aguilar]

Fondane went to Buenos Aires a first time in July 1929 on the invitation of Victoria Ocampo for a serie of conferences on cinema. He went back in 1936 to work on a movie “Tararira”, produced by Miguel Machinandiarena. “Tararira” (La bohemia de hoy) was the only movie entirely realised by Fondane, on a music by Paco Aguilar (the Aguilar were also acting in the movie). Because of misunderstanding between Fondane and Machinandiarena, the movie will never be shown; Fondane could never get it back from the producer and apparently all the copies disappeared after the war.Not mentionned in the original caption, the seated man on the photo is Miguel Machinandiarena (i think…)
