Doctísimo Lector 
Encontrarás en este documento varias cosas. Primero, unaselección de los llamados
Carmina Burana
, poemas medievaleslatinos. Dicha selección fue obra de una alumna, que buscó en laRed y me copió lo que encontró, hace ya diez años. Verás que estánen latín y en inglés.Luego otra alumna, Stella Maris Correa, se tomó el trabajo de poner en español la selección.Por fin, mi tenue ingenio se animó a escribir tres o cuatro cosasrelacionadas con todo esto.Amate, por favor, a leer las dos primeras partes deldocumento. Tu amigoRadulfus
1 Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (Fortune, Empress of the World)

2 Fortune plango vulnera (I bemoan the wounds of Fortune)
Fortune plango vulnera I bemoan the wounds of Fortunestillantibus ocellis with weeping eyes,quod sua michi munera for the gifts she made mesubtrahit rebellis. she perversely takes away.Verum est, quod legitur, It is written in truth,fronte capillata, that she has a fine head of hair,sed plerumque sequitur but, when it comes to seizing an opportunityOccasio calvata. she is bald.
