Muy graciosa es la doncella

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

Muy [graciosa]1 es la doncella
como es hermosa y bella.
Digas tu el marinero
que en las naves vivias,
si la nave ó la vela
ó la estrella, es tan bella?
Digas tu el caballero
que las armas vestias,
si el caballo ó las armas
ó la guerra, es tan bella?
Digas tu el pastorcico
que el ganadico guardas,
si el gando ó los valles
ó la sierra, es tan bella?
