You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Passava Amor su arco desarmado

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

Passava Amor su arco elesarmado, 
los ojos baxos, blando y muy modesto;
dexava m'ya atras muy descuidado. 

Quam poco espacio pude gozar esto.
Fortuna de embidiosa dixo luego: 
"Teneos, Amor; porque vays tam presto?

Bolvio do presto a mi el niño ciego, 
muy enojado en versé reprehendido 
que no ha reprehensión do sta su fuego. 

Ay prados, bosques, selvas, que criastes,
tan libre corazón como ere el mio, 
porque tan grande mal no te estorbastes.
