1525, Almocreves


(poem). A hill song.

The snow is on the hills, the hills so cold and high.
I saw a maiden of the hills, graceful and fair, pass by.

I saw a maiden of the hills, graceful and fair, pass by,
And I towards her went with great courtesy.

And I towards her went with great courtesy.
" Will you," said I, " lady, of my company ?"

" Will you," said I, " lady, of my company ?"
But " Sir Knight, pass on your way," said she unto me.

A serra é alta fria e nevosa
vi venir serrana gentil graciosa.

Vi venir serrana gentil graciosa
cheguei-me pera ela com grã cortesia.

Cheguei-me a ela de grã cortesia
disse-lhe: senhora quereis companhia?

Disse-lhe: senhora quereis companhia?
Dixe-me: escudeiro segui vossa via.
