Silky Remedy and the Golden Spider by YinglongFujun Silky Remedy and the Golden Spider by YinglongFujun
Silky Remedy ('Remei' is her pet name, in Catalan) and her guardian, the legendary Golden Spider Balanguera.

The name Balanguera is taken from the Mallorcan poem / song La Balanguera:


The Balanguera (La Balanguera) (Free English translation)

The Balanguera of mystery,

like a spider of subtle art,

empties, oh, empties her spinning wheel

and pulls off the thread of all our hearts.

Our true destiny she ponders deep,

weaving the cloth as day begins.

Refrain:

The Balanguera she spins, she spins,

the Balanguera she shall spin.

Turning her glance to history passing

she guards the shades of ancestry

and from the dewy verdant budding

she knows where all the seeds are hid.

She knows that the vine-stock climbs higher

the deeper its roots can go in.

Refrain

From traditions and from our good hopes

the youthful flag flies in the air,

as she weaves and grooms a wedding veil

with strands of gold and silver hair

of the childhood that grows up quickly

of the old age that’s always been.

Refrain
