Alfonso X El Sabio

(1221 - 1284 / Toledo)

Cantiga No. 60,


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…

of the slow autumn at my window,
