Text & Translation

Llorad corazón, que tenéis razón
Spanish source: Luis de Góngora

Lloraba la niña
(y tenía razón)
la prolija ausencia
de su ingrato amor.
Dejola tan niña,
que apenas, creo yo
que tenía los años
que ha que la dejó.
Llorando la ausencia
del galán traidor,
la halla la Luna
y la deja el Sol,
añadiendo siempre
pasión a pasión,
memoria a memoria
dolor a dolor.
Llorad, Corazón,
que tenéis razón.

The girl was lamenting
English translation © Jacqueline Cockburn

The girl was lamenting
(and with reason)
the prolonged absence
of her ungrateful lover.
He left her so young,
that I believe she was scarcely
as old as the years
since he left her.
Lamenting the absence
of her faithless lover,
she is found by the moon
and left by the sun,
ever heaping
suffering on suffering,
memory on memory,
anguish on anguish.
Weep, heart,
for you have reason.
