El sueño de la hija del rey

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

El rey de Francia
tres hijas tenía.
La una labraba
la otra cosia
la más chica de ellas
bastidor hacía.
Labrando labrando
sueño le caía.
Su madre que la veía
Aharvar1 la quería.
 
No me aharves, mi madre
ni me aharvarías.
Un sueño me soñaba,
bien y alegría.
 
Sueño vos soñabas
yo vo lo soltaría
 
Me aparí a la puerta,
vide la luna entera.
Me aparí a la ventana,
vide la estrella Diana.
Me aparí al pozo,
vide un pilar de oro
con tres pajaricos
picando el oro.
 
La luna entera
es la tu suegra.
La estrella Diana
es la tu cuñada.
Los tres pajaricos
son tus tres cuñadicos.
Y el pilar de oro,
el hijo del rey, tu novio.
