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!

El Mariner

Language: Catalan (CatalĂ )

A la vora de la mar 
n'hi ha una donzella, hi ha una donzella,
que en brodava un mocador
que és per la reina, que és per la reina. 

Quan en fou a mig brodar
li manca seda;
gira els ulls envers la mar
veu una vela. 

Veu venir un galiot
tot vora terra,
en veu venir un mariner
que una nau mena. 

-Mariner, bon mariner:
que en porteu seda ?
-De quin color la voleu,
blanca o vermella ?

-Vermelleta la vull jo,
que és millor seda.
Vermelleta la vull jo
que és per la reina. 

-Pugeu a dalt de la nau,
triareu d'ella.
-Ai no ? No hi puc pujar
no tinc moneda. 

El meu pare té les claus
de l'arquimesa,
-No quedeu per diners, no,
gentil donzella. 

La donzella entra a la nau,
tria la seda.
Mentre va mercadejant
la nau pren vela.
