Original text and translations

Spanish.png Spanish text

Es tan violento el estrago de tus ojos peregrinos,
que aún primero que el estrago se advierte en ellos lo impío.
Ay que me abrasó ay dulce hechizo, ay ten las iras, ay dueño mio,
pues sabes que a lo hermoso, sobra lo esquivo.

[Tentative: original text is very obscure]

The wickedness of your handsome eyes is so intense
that their impiety is more apparent that their wickedness.
Ah sweet fascination consumes me, ah hold your anger, ah my master,
for you know that reserve is superior to beauty.
