II. Some day, some day
(Alguna Vez)
By Cristóbal de Gastillejo

SOME day, some day,
O troubled breast,
Shalt thou find rest.
If Love in thee
To grief give birth,        5
Six feet of earth
Can more than he;
There calm and free
And unoppressed
Shalt thou find rest.        10
The unattained
In life at last,
When life is passed,
Shall all be gained;
And no more pained,        15
No more distressed,
Shalt thou find rest.
