Cantiga No. 60, - Poem by Alfonso X El Sabio

Ca Eva nos tolleu
Parays'e Deus
Ave nos y meteu;
porend', amigos meus:
Entre Av'e Eva…

For Eva took us away
from heaven and from God,
Ave puts us back there.
That is why, my friends:
'Twixt Ave and Eva…

Eva nos foi deitar
do dem' en sa prijon,
e Ave en sacar;
e por esta razon:
Entre Av'e Eva…

Eva had us bewitched
by the devil in his prison;
and Ave brought us out from there;
and for that reason:
'Twixt Ave and Eva…

Eva nos fez perder
amor de Deus e ben,
e pos Ave aver
no lo fez; e poren:
Entre Av'e Eva…

Eva caused us to lose
the love of God and Righteousness;
Ave brought it back to us
again; and for that:
'Twixt Ave and Eva…

Eva nos ensserrou
os çeos sen chave,
e Maria britou
as portas per Ave:
Entre Av'e Eva…

Eva kept us shut in,
far from heaven, without the keys,
and Mary broke open
the doors with Ave.
'Twixt Ave and Eva…
