They gazed with rancour at the passing trains, the wires of the telegraph pole. When it grew dark on Friday, it was time for the goodbye. An agent of the new owner came for the animal. He was in a highly excited state. The weight of the money in his pocket further enlivened his spirits. He wanted to blind himself. He spoke a lot, singing the praises of the cow.
Who cared if the cow provided so much milk? That she was noble in the yoke, strong when heavily burdened? So what, if in a matter of days she was going to be turned into chops and other delicious cuts? At the last moment, they threw themselves on top of their friend; kisses, embraces, everything.
They could not release her. He folded his arms and entered the darkened yard. Night fell. The high hedges along the darkened, narrow lane appeared black, practically forming a vault. In a moment there remained nothing of her but the slow tinkle of the bell, a sound that faded little by little in the distance among the sad creaks of countless cicadas. For them, the solitude encountered there had never been sad. Suddenly, the locomotive whistled, smoke appeared, and then the train.
In a closed wagon, in narrow, high windows or air vents, the twins glimpsed the heads of cows that peered, bewildered, through the openings. Many years passed. The third Carlist war raged. It carried with it her only love, her brother. The locomotive whistled in the distance and then the train passed along the cutting in a flash.
Rosa, nearly caught up in the wheels, saw for an instant in a third-class coach the heads of numerous poor conscripts, crying out and gesticulating, greeting the trees, the soil, the fields, and everything about their mother country that was familiar to them, their local areas, everything left behind to go and die in the fratricidal conflicts of the country as a whole, in the service of a king and ideas they had no knowledge of. Rosa heard the clear voice of her brother among the noise of the wheels and the shouts of the recruits.

That was the world, the unknown, which swallowed everything. And without realising what she was doing, Rosa leaned her head against the pole that stood like a banner at the extremity of the Somonte.
The wind sang its metallic song in the entrails of the dry pine. Now, Rosa understood. It was a tearful refrain, of abandonment, of solitude, of death. You are commenting using your WordPress.
