Mi libertad en sosiego,
mi coraçon descuidado,
sus muros i fortaleza,
amores me l’an çercado.
Rrazón y seso y cordura,
que tenía a mi mandado,
hizieron trato con ellos,
¡malamente m’an burlado!
Y la fe, qu’era el alcayde,
las llaves les á entregado.
Combatieron por los ojos,
diéronse luego de grado.
My untroubled freedom,
my carefree heart,
its walls and defences,
have been besieged by Love.
Love has struck a bargain with Reason,
Wisdom and Good Sense,
which I had at my command:
how wickedly they have deceived me!
And Faith, which was the jailer,
has delivered the keys over to Love.
Love attacked through my eyes,
and then my defences all gladly yielded.
