Song: If thou art sleeping, maiden
 
By Gil Vicente

IF thou art sleeping, maiden,
  Awake, and open thy door.
’T is the break of day, and we must away,
  O’er meadow, and mount, and moor.
 
Wait not to find thy slippers,        5
  But come with thy naked feet:
We shall have to pass through the dewy grass,
  And waters wide and fleet.
