Mi corza (Spanish)

En Ávila, mis ojos...

Mi corza, buen amigo,

mi corza blanca.

Los lobos la mataron

My Roe Deer (English)

‘On Avila, my eyes…’

XVth Century


My roe deer, dear friend,

My white roe deer.


The wolves slew her

In the depths of the water.


The wolves, dear friend,

That fled across the river.


The wolves slew her

deep in the water.
