A. 112. The Reward of Boldness


(From: Schleife)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

When spring will be new again,
When spring will be new again,
And the fields and meadows will green,

When the trees will be in bloom,
When the trees will be in bloom,
The garden will be dressed with roses.

Then I will make a pretty wreath for me
Then I will make a pretty wreath for me,
Yes, two wreaths I will make here.

The youth was wandering in the high hills
The youth was wandering in the high hills,
In the high hills he was wandering.

He was looking for a fine sweetheart
He was looking for a fine sweetheart,
Looking for a sweet girl.

The young girl was walking in the court yard
The young girl was walking in the court yard,
With two wreaths on her head.

‘How does the youth feel, the proud lord,
How does the youth feel, the proud lord,
So that he will accept the wreaths from me?’

And the loved one was bold enough
And the loved one was bold enough
To take the girl’s wreath.

The girl hurried back to Krostwitz
The girl hurried back to Krostwitz,
To Krostwitz, to the good judge.

“O judge, dear judge brave and good
O judge, dear judge brave and good,
I have a complaint for you.”

‘I have a serious complaint for you
I have a serious complaint for you,
About my bold loved one.’

“Tell me what you want, my girl,
Tell me what you want, my girl,
About your bold loved one.”

‘I want to stand before the wedding altar
I want to stand before the wedding altar,
I want advice from a wise hand.”
