A. 119. Strong Faithfulness


(From: Nart)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

The mother is braiding the girl’s hair
Every good Sunday.

Braided the girl’s unruly hair
Shielding her always for this.

“Leave your loved one once,
The one you loved up to now.”

‘If you will not leave your loved one,
I will lock you up.’

‘I will surely lock you up
In the new prison.’

The mother really locked up her daughter
In the new prison.

‘Just stay here a year and a day
Till you forget your loved one.’

“My loved one I will not forget
While I am still in this world.”

Behold, there flew, there flew around
Two white doves together.

Behold, they flew up so high
And then sat down so humbly.

Sat down so humbly, down so humbly
On the girl’s chamber.

“Girl, what will you give us as a reward
If we make you a window?”

“Make you a little window,
So that you can see your loved one.”

‘O, what good does it do just to look,
When I can’t talk to him?’

“When your loved one comes to look at you,
You will also be able to talk with him.”

The doves made a little window,
A little window just so nice.

Before the day dawned,
She had already flown her prison.

They took each other by the hand
And walked along in the meadow.

They pulled up, pulled up for themselves
Flowers white and red.

They planted them, planted them for themselves
There in a little garden.

When the flowers will be in lovely bloom
We will be united.

The flowers are now blooming so lovely and nice.
No one will be able to separate us anymore.
