GIL VICENTE
Portuguese dramatist, poet and writer of literature
(1470 - 1540)

I saw the rose-grove blushing in pride,
  I gathered the blushing rose--and sigh'd--
    I come from the rose-grove, mother,
      I come from the grove of roses.
      - I Come from the Rose-grove, Mother,
        (translated by John Bowring) [Roses]

The rose looks out in the valley,
  And thither will I go,
    To the rosy vale, where the nightingale
      Sings his song of woe.
      - The Nightingale,
        (John Bowring's translation)
        [Nightingales]
