Pretty Little Girl With the Red Dress On

Carmina Burana 177 (tr. G.F. Whicher):
Stetit puella
rufa tunica;
siquis eam tetigit,
tunica crepuit.

Stetit puella
tamquam rosula:
facie splenduit,
et os eius floruit.

There stood a girl, in red she was gowned,
Her dress if you touched it made a
Swishing sound.

Like a little rose-tree there she stood --
Her cheeks blown roses
And her mouth a bud.
