Sonnet from Don Quixote

Irish siblings Patrick and Eilís Dexter spend a moment here enjoying a sublime combination of ideas derived from Spanish literature and music. The melody, inspired by "Romance de Espańa", is well-known although its provenance is lost to antiquity. Conversely, the words of this sonnet are taken from a song in Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, one of the most famous pieces of literature in the world.
