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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

A unos ojos

Language: Spanish (Español)

¡Ah! Luceros radiantes, luceros hermosos,
Sois ojos graciosos:
Mas ¿que fuisteis antes?
¡Ah! Teneis de estudiantes el ser revoltosos;
Más por lo alevosos,
Pareceis matantes.

Alegres ojillos, ojillos traviesos,
¿Cómo sois tan sabios,
Cómo sois tan pillos,
Qué sabéis de besos
Cual si fueseis labios?

À deux yeux

Language: French (Français) after the Spanish (Español)

Ah ! étoiles rayonnantes, belles étoiles,
Vous êtes des yeux magnifiques :
Mais, qu'étiez-vous avant ?
Ah ! Vous tenez des étudiants le caractère rebelle ;
Mais pour les traîtres,
Vous semblez prêts à tuer.

Petits yeux effrontés, petits yeux coquins,
Pourquoi êtes-vous si sages,
Pourquoi êtes-vous si méchants,
Que savez-vous des baisers,
Comme si vous étiez des lèvres ?
