Another Sun

De una Virgen hermosa
celos tiene el sol,
porque vio en sus brazos
otro sol mayor.

Cuando del Oriente
salió el sol dorado,
y otro sol helado
miró tan ardiente,
quitó de la frente
la corona bella,
y a los pies de la estrella
su lumbre adoró,
porque vio en sus brazos
otro sol mayor.

«Hermosa María,
dice el sol vencido,
de vos ha nacido
el sol que podía
dar al mundo el día
que ha deseado».
Esto dijo humillado
a María el sol,
porque vio en sus brazos
otro sol mayor.

-Lope de Vega

The sun is envious
Of a beautiful Virgin,
Because in her arms
He saw a greater Sun.

When the golden Sun
Rose from the east,
The other cold sun
Viewed it so bright,
He took off from his head
His own beautiful crown,
And at the feet of the star
Her glow he adored,
Because in her arms
He saw a greater Sun.

“Beautiful Mary,”
Says the conquered sun,
“From you is born
The sun who can give
The world the day that it has desired.”
This the humbled sun
Said to Mary,
Because in her arms
He saw a greater Sun.
