Canto fúnebre para fídula

Language: Spanish (Español) after the English

No temas más el calor del sol
Ni la rabia furiosa del invierno;
Pues ya se ha cumplido tu tarea en este mundo,
Los asuntos hogareños ya pasados, y cobrados los salarios:
Los chicos y chicas áureos, 
Como deshollinadores, vuelven al polvo.
Todos los jóvenes amantes, todos los amantes 
Consignan a ti, y devienen polvo.
¡Ningún exorcista te dañará!
Tampoco ningún encantamiento de brujería.
¡Los fantasmas insepultos, te dejarán en paz!
Nada malo se acercará a ti.
Sea tranquila tu consumación;
Y renombrada sea tu tumba!
