“Naive Ballad” is the subtitle of this early Lorca poem, written mostly in dialogues, based on the ingenuous popular beliefs of humble people who dreamed and consoled themselves with looking at the sky. The influence of a refined modernist aesthetic naturally blends with popular and traditional elements. The wild joy of the children threads the poem like a refrain. The picture book closes with a biographical note about the poet which illustrates his poetics and sensibility.
