Now I invite you to read a poem about a dance that happened during a wedding.
Weddings were done in France,
there in Paris
How well the dance guides
this Doña Beatriz!
How well he was looking at her
the good count Don Martín!
-What are you looking at, here, good count?
Count, what are you looking at, here?
Say if you watch the dance
or if you look at me.
-That I do not look at the dance,
because I saw many dances,
I look at your beauty
that makes me grieve.
-If I look good to you, count,
Count, get me out of here
because an old husband is given to me
and he can't go after me.
Here you can find a glossary with some words from the poem:
