Message    I am looking for the translation to the Sheila Chandra song- En Mireal del Penal. I noticed someone else posted the same request but it was in a 'reply' message, and since it was not a new message, I thought it may have been overlooked. I thought I would give it another chance.
Anything would be appreciated.
In Grace,
Nari

Message   Hi Joe,

Sorry, I just saw your reply. I'm afraid the only thing I know about this song is that it is in Shiela Chandra's CD. I did the translation based on the lyrics you posted (and for which I was searching--thanks--since I couldn't really understand what Shiela was singing.)


Cheers,
Miguel

Message   That looks like an automated translation, which lost some of the beauty of the words.

Here is another version

Through the bars of my jail
Through the bars of my jail
Peeking through, night and day
And set in her rosebush
And set in her rosebush
A rose bloomed
And set in her rosebush
And set in her rosebush
Ah, a rose bloomed

From the power of seeing the rose
I felt affection towards her.
I loved her like a goddess
I loved her like a goddess
Oh
For her ermine whiteness

I wanted to flee the prison
Breaking my sentence
But I saw the rose suffer
But I saw the rose suffer
oh
Withering from pain

And not to feel its cries
I desisted in my evasion
I remained a prisoner behind the bars
I remained a prisoner behind the bars
Of that sad prison.

Message   En mi reja del penal
en mi reja del penal
asomaba noche y día
y engarzada en su rosal
y engarzada en su rosal
y una rosa florecía
y engarzada en su rosal
y engarzada en su rosal
ay, y una rosa florecía

A fuerza de ver la rosa
sentí por ella cariño
la quise como una diosa
la quise como una diosa
ay....aaayyyy
por su blancura de armiño

Del penal yo quise huir
quebrantando mi condena
mas vi a la rosa sufrir
mas vi a la rosa sufrir
ay....aaayyyy
marchitándose de pena

Y por no sentir sus quejas
desistí de mi evasión
seguí preso tras las rejas
seguí preso tras las rejas
de aquella triste prisión
