Fact No. 36 – Your eyes are lightning

What is the use of a look in my eyes so deep that, in order to avoid scorn and anger, I have to turn my gaze to the ground?  What fire do my eyes carry within them that, if I look with just a little passion at my lover, it causes me to blush?  This is why the man who sparks my passion, to whom I’ve given my soul, stands in front of me, tosses his hat at my feet, and says to me: ‘Woman, don’t look at me anymore because your eyes are lightning and they’re burning me alive with desire.’ (Granados / Periquet : ‘El Mirar de la Maja’ from Tonadillas)
