O Oriens

Mi Amado, las montañas,
los valles solitarios nemorosos,
las ínsulas extrañas,
los ríos sonorosos,
el silbo de los aires amorosos,

la noche sosegada
en par de los levantes del aurora,
la música callada,
la soledad sonora,
la cena que recrea y enamora.

San Juan de la Cruz

 Cántico Espiritual (Redacción B)
Canciónes entre el alma y el esposo

Juan de la Cruz (15) writing

My Beloved, the mountains,
and lonely wooded valleys,
strange islands,
and resounding rivers,
the whistling of love-stirring breezes,

the tranquil night
at the time of the rising dawn,
silent music,
sounding solitude,
the supper that refreshes and deepens love.

Saint John of the Cross

The Spiritual Canticle (Redaction B)
Songs between the soul and the Bridegroom
