MONTORO'S SONG



MONTORO'S SONG AGAINST COUNT ALVARO DE
LUNA, HIGH CONSTABLE OF CASTILE

(From the Spanish of E. Marquina)

"King, a flock is feeding
down the cliff unheeding
    and upon the hill,
with your crook to shepherd it. . . ."
—It is yours, O Favourite.
    Ask for what you will.

"In your crown a jewel
blazes fierce and cruel—
    kingship to fulfil.
Such a royal stone is it. . . ."
—It is yours, O Favourite.
    Ask for what you will.
