Texto  español English text
  Todos perecieron.
Cuando el cercano día comenzó a blanquear las altas copas de los enebros, humeaban aún los calcinados escombros de las desplomadas torres; y a través de sus anchas brechas, chispeando al herirla la luz y colgada de uno de los negros pilares de la sala del festín, era fácil divisar la armadura del temido jefe, cuyo cadáver, cubierto de sangre y polvo, yacía entre los desgarrados tapices y las calientes cenizas, confundido con los de sus oscuros compañeros.
  They all perished.
When the near day began to whiten the high glasses of the junipers, they were still fumigating the calcined debris of the collapsed towers; and across his wide breaches, sparking on having hurt the light and hung by one of the black props of the room of the banquet, it was easy to discern the armor of the been afraid boss, whose corpse covered of blood and dust, was lying between the torn carpets and the warm ashes, confused with those of his dark partners.
