The Meeting of Mireya and Andresillo more
Encuentro de Mireya y Andresillo
Mireya (Mirèio) stands leaning back against an old stone well, the bucket on its rope behind her; the boy Andresillo, with his unbuttoned shirt, sits on the ground beside her.
In the original the boy’s name is Andreloun, I think. I found this in a translation:
The well was old, with ivy overrun,—
A watering-place for flocks; and from the sun
Scarce by it sheltered sat a little boy,
With basket-full of small white snails for toy.
With his brown hands, he one by one withdrew them,
The tiny harvest-snails; and then sang to them,—
“Snaily, snaily, little nun,
Come out of the cell, come int the sun!
Show me your horns without delay,
Or I’ll tear your convent-walls away.”
(p. 161 in the English translation)
