by Lope de Vega, translated by George Ticknor
Written in Spanish by Lope as “Hoy la Nave del deleite”, translated by George Ticknor for inclusion in his ‘’History of Spanish Literature’’, published in 1849

     Holloa! the good ship of Delight
Spreads her sails for the sea today;
Who embarks? who embarks, I say?
     Today the good ship of Content,
With a wind at her choice for her course,
To a land where no troubles are sent,
Where none knows the stings of remorse,
With a wind fair and free takes her flight;-
Who embarks? who embarks, I say?
