Se, qui tacta, risi
Relucescet, imbutur, fuit
Cantare, conticere, citare
Vivat, futura ancilla!
Sub caelum dormit
Nunc, cum pacem desperata, dedatur
Puella, supplex, inquit
'Te memini, soror'
Having been touched
She who, having been touched, laughed
She became bright again, she was saturated, she was
Having been desired
To sing, to be silent, to be roused
She lives, having been a slave!
She sleeps beneath the sky
Now, when she has given up on peace, she is given it
The girl, kneeling, says
'I remember you, sister.'
