Triste España
Juan del Encina (1464-1523)

Triste España sin ventura,
Todos te deben llorar,
despoblada d'alegría;
para nunca en titornar.

Pierdos Príncipe tan alto,
Hijo de reyes sin par.
Llora, llora, pues perdiste
Quien te había de ensalzar

En su tierna juventud
Te lo quiso Dios llevar.
De tan penosa tristura
No te esperes consolar.


Triste España
Translation

Unhappy Spain, deprived of good fortune
Everyone should weep for you,
bereft of joy and never
to return to your former state.

You have lost an excellent prince,
a kingly son without equal.
Lament, for you have lost one
who would have excited you.

In his early youth:
God took him from you
in so great a sorrow.
you cannot hope for comfort.
