Tacta

Se, qui tacta, risi

Relucescet, imbutur, fuit

O

Anhela

Cantare, conticere, citare

Vivat, futura ancilla!

O

Sub caelum dormit

Nunc, cum pacem desperata, dedatur

Puella, supplex, inquit

'Te memini, soror'

O

Having been touched

She who, having been touched, laughed

She became bright again, she was saturated, she was

O

Having been desired

To sing, to be silent, to be roused

She lives, having been a slave!

O

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.'
