'Through the recumbent air of the summer night floated the fluttering ribbons of the crickets' is a line from 'Meditations and allegories on water' by Federica García Lorca (1898-1936).

The original Spanish is 'Por el aire yacante de la noche estival flotoban las temblorosas cintas de los grillos.'
