Part of a series or song cycle:

Canciones amatorias


No lloréis ojuelos

No lloréis, ojuelos,
porque no es razón
que llore de celos
quien mata de amor.
Quien puede matar
no intente morir,
si hace con reír
más que con llorar.
No lloréis ojuelos,
porque no es razón
que llore de celos
quien mata de amor.

Don't cry, little eyes

Don't cry little eyes,
for it is not right
to cry with jealousy
if you kill with love.
She who can kill
should not seek to die,
if she can do more with laughter
than with tears.
Daon't cry, little eyes,
for it is not right
to cry with jealousy
if you kill with love.
Translations by Jacqueline Cockburn and Richard Stokes published in the The Spanish Song Companion (Gollancz, 1992)
