in trutina lyrics – hayley westenra

in trutina mentis dubia
fluctuant contraria
lascivus amor et pudicitia.
sed eligo quod video
collum iugo prebeo;
ad iugum tamen suave transeo


in the wavering balance of my feelings
set against each other
lascivious love and modesty.
but i choose what i see,
and submit my neck to the yoke;
i yield to the sweet yoke.
