Gracia mía

Language: Spanish

Gracia mía, juro a Dios 
que sois tan bella criatura 
que a perderse la hermosura 
se tiene de hallar su voz. 

Fuera bien aventurada 
en perderse en vos mi vida 
porque viniera perdida 
para salir más ganada. 

¡Ah! Seréis hermosuras dos 
en una sola figura, 
que a perderse la hermosura 
se tiene de haller en vos. 

En vuestros verdes ojuelos 
nos mostráis vuestro valor 
que son causa del amor 
y las pestañas son cielos; 
nacieron por bien de nos. 

Gracia mía ...

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
