Cuatro madrigales amatorios


De los álamos vengo, madre

De los álamos vengo, madre,
de ver cómo los menea el aire.
De los álamos de Sevilla,
de ver a mi linda amiga,
de ver cómo los menea el aire.
De los álamos vengo, madre,
der ver cómo los menea el aire.

I come from the poplars, mother

I come from the poplars, mother,
from seeing the breezes stir them.
From the poplars of Seville,
from seeing my sweet love,
from seeing the breezes stir them.
I come from the poplars, mother,
from seeing the breezes stir them.
Translations by Jacqueline Cockburn and Richard Stokes published in the The Spanish Song Companion (Gollancz, 1992)
