Mañanica era

Language: Spanish (Español)

Mañanica era, mañana 
de San Juan1 se decía al fin, 
cuando aquella diosa Venus
dentro de un fresco jardín 
tomando estaba la fresca 
a la sombra de un jazmín,
cabellos en su cabeza, 
parecía un serafín. 
Sus mejillas y sus labios 
como color de rubí 
y el objeto de su cara 
figuraba un querubín; 
allí de flores floridas 
hacía un rico cojín, 
de rosas una guirnalda 
para el que venía a morir, 
¡ah!, lealmente por amores 
sin a nadie descubrir.
