Stanza

Poem by Diego Hurtado de Mendoza
That tree whose leaves are trembling
is yearning for something.

That tree so lovely to look at
acts as if wants to give flowers:
it is yearning for something.

That tree so lovely to see
acts as if it wants to lower:
it is yearning for something.

It acts as if wants to give flowers:
there are already showing; come out and look:
it is yearning for something.

It acts as if wants to flowers:
there are already showing; come out and see:
it is yearning for something.

They are already showing: come and look.
Let the ladies come and pick the fruits:
it is yearning for something.


Cossante

A aquel alto árbol que vuelve la hoja
algo se le antoja.

Aquel árbol de buen mirar
hace de modo flores quiere dar,
algo se le antoja.

Aquel árbol de bello ver
hace de modo quiere florecer,
algo se le antoja.

Hace de modo flores quiere dar;
pronto se muestra, salid a mirar,
algo se le antoja.

Hace de modo quiere florecer;
pronto se muestra, salid a lo ver,
algo se le antoja.

Pronto se muestra, salid a mirar;
vengan las damas las frutas catar,
algo se le antoja.

Pronto se muestra, salid a lo ver;
vengan las damas las frutas coger,
algo se le antoja.
