amor volat undique lyrics – carl orff

section: cour d’amours (garden of love)

amor volat undique, cupid flies everywhere
captus est libidine. seized by desire
iuvenes, iuvencule young men and women
coniunguntur merito. are rightly coupled

siqua sine socio, the girl without a lover
caret omni gaudio; misses out on all plesures
tenet noctis infima she keeps the night
sub intimo hidden
cordis in custodia: in the depth of her heart

fit res amarissima. it’s a most bitter fate.
