Ayo visto lo mappamundi

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

Ayo visto lo mappamundi
É la carta dei naviguari,
Ma Sicilia me pari
La più bella d'aquesto mundi.
Tres Sicilias son no piùi;
Tota tri son coronati:
Rey Alfonso 'n té la duy,
Citrafarum et Ultrafarum.
La terç a no lo calendari.
Non se parla de la quarta
Que non se trobar en carta.
E venuta del otro mundi.
Vidi Corsica e Sardinia,
E la isola de Medea;
Non sia nullo qui m'ensenya
Cipra, Candia, la Moreya,
Ay cercato con la galleya
La nov' isola de Castella;
Ma Sicilia è tanto bella,
Que pensando me confundi.
Ayo visto lo mappamundi
É la carta de naviguari,
Ma Sicilia me pari
La più bella d'aquesto mundi
