Another spanish saying and proverb 71
05 May 2017 @ 11:26

       Today I would like to show you a very popular saying in Spain, that says: Ande yo caliente y riase la gente = While I take cover, people can laugh.

      This saying comes from a poem by Góngora (Luis de Góngora y Argote was a Spanish poet and playwright of the Golden Age --Sixteenth century--), which reads as follows:

While I take cover,

people can laugh.

Others treat of the government

of the world and its monarchies,

while ruling my days 5

butters and sweet bread;

and winter mornings

orange juice and brandy,

and people laugh.

      But this saying does not refer literally to the fact of going warm, but rather going against the conventions of society. For example, one day, Lady Gaga was in the street dressed in a bizarre way; but she does not mind doing that, she does not care if someone laughs.

Lady Gaga

      Well, I hope that you have liked this saying.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.

Andeme yo caliente
y ríase la gente.
Traten otros del gobierno
del mundo y sus monarquías,
mientras gobiernan mis días 5
mantequillas y pan tierno;
y las mañanas de invierno
naranjada y aguardiente,(1)
y ríase la gente.
Coma en dorada vajilla 10
el Príncipe mil cuidados,
como píldoras dorados;(2)
que yo en mi pobre mesilla
quiero más una morcilla(3)
que en el asador reviente, 15
y ríase la gente.
Cuando cubra las montañas
de blanca nieve el enero,
tenga yo lleno el brasero
de bellotas y castañas, 20
y quien las dulces patrañas
del Rey que rabió me cuente,(4)
y ríase la gente.
Busque muy en hora buena
el mercader nuevos soles,(5) 25
yo conchas y caracoles
entre la menuda arena,
escuchando a Filomena (6)
sobre el chopo de la fuente,
y ríase la gente. 30
Pase a medianoche el mar
y arda en amorosa llama
Leandro por ver su dama,(7)
que yo más quiero pasar
del golfo de mi lagar 35
la blanca o roja corriente,(8)
y ríase la gente.
Pues Amor es tan cruel
que de Píramo y su amada
hace tálamo una espada, 40
do se juntan ella y él,(9)
sea mi Tisbe un pastel
y la espada sea mi diente,
y ríase la gente.

Lady gaga may not care about how she is viewed, but she may break her legs in those shoes.

WHEN all the world is young, lad,
And all the trees are green ;
And every goose a swan, lad,
And every lass a queen ;
Then hey for boot and horse, lad,
And round the world away ;
Young blood must have its course, lad,
And every dog his day.

When all the world is old, lad,
And all the trees are brown ;
And all the sport is stale, lad,
And all the wheels run down ;
Creep home, and take your place there,
The spent and maimed among :
God grant you find one face there,
You loved when all was young.

One of favourite poems (Charles Kingsley)
