Las Animas Echan Carreras/Sunset Bells Go Full Out by Daniel de Cullá

Animas benditas levantaos
sacad las calabazas de vuestras tumbas
encended los cirios y candelas
mirad que vienen ánimas difuntas
por vuestras floridas cabeceras
con ángeles del cielo que van de carreras.
Seguidles a ver quién primero llega
hasta el patio de Halloween
donde la Vida batalla con la muerte
en esta estación otoñal presente
cuando la Gloria descansa
sobre el monte Ocaso bajo tierra.
Aplicaos, pues los primeros que lleguen
rezarán por las almas bellas
las que descansan en paz, y las que no
y por las nuestras, en presencia juntas
cuando hayamos desayunado
y ayudemos al sepulturero ocupado
en abrir y cerrar las tumbas.
Clamores a difuntos salen de las iglesias
agua bendita del Cielo cae.
Yo no puedo ir, que estoy ocupado
En echar una gallina clueca
Para que todos me salgan pollitos.
Que vaya mi alma, si quiere
que está descansada debajo de su mandil
que escuche las palabras de las calabazas
Que llevan un “déjame aquí”
En el Cementerio HaHa
de Albert County.

Arise blessed Souls
Bring out your pumpkins from graves
ignite the candles and bougies
looking at the deceased souls coming
by your flowery headboards
with angels of heaven going races.
Follow them to see who comes first
to the courtyard “Halloween”
where life and death battle
in this present autumn season
when  Glory rests
on Mount Sunset under Earth.
Apply yourselves, because the first to arrive
will pray for the beautiful souls
those who rest in peace, or  not
and ours, in presence together
when we had had breakfast
and help the busy gravedigger
to open and close the graves.
Tolls of bells go out frum churches
holy water falls from Sky.
I can not go, I’m busy
Maintaining a broody hen
To only born chicks.
That went my soul, if she want
Who is rested under her apron
I hear the words of pumpkins
Thjat listen the pumpkins’ words
Carrying a “leave me here”, calm down
A the HaHa Cemetery
in Albert County.
