La Esperança çercana.

Ottava rhima.

De tempestad contina maltratada
Està nuestra ciudad, y solo resta
Esp’rança de salud muy esperada,
Como la nave que en alta mar puesta
Siendo del fiero viento fatigada
Espera de sus curas sola esta,
Venir los dos hermanos[1] de la Helena  [M]
Con quien el ayre escuro se serena.

[Marginalia - link to text]Castor y Polux vulgamente sanselmo.

Notes:

1.  ‘The brothers of Helen’, i.e., as the Spanish side-note explains, the stars Castor and Pollux, the Dioscuri, protectors of sailors.
