A. 245. The Boy's Dream


(From Schleife)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

On a new shingle roof sat
On a new shingle roof sat
The lad dozing there.
The lad dozing there.

He dreamed of a beautiful sweetheart
He dreamed of a beautiful sweetheart
A wonderful dream.
A wonderful dream.

He searched after in his pocket
He searched after in his pocket
He found there three gold pieces.
He found there three gold pieces.

He bought for himself three pieces of land,
He bought for himself three pieces of land,
He plowed them before noon.
He plowed them before noon.

He sowed Melde in the valley,
He sowed alarm Melde in the valley,
And Waizen on the mountain.
And Waizen on the mountain.

The Melde grows up with the weeds
The Melde grows up with the weeds
The sweetheart will not weed it.
The sweetheart will not weed it.

The thistles prick her hands,
The thistles prick her hands,
The nettles burn her.
The nettles burn her.

She bought him a little garden,
She bought him a little garden,
Truly a vineyard.
Truly a vineyard.

But who will gather them?
But who will gather them?
Little Maria N. N.
Little Maria N. N.

But who helps her then with it?
But who helps her then with it?
Andreas N. N.
Andreas N. N.

Little Maria weeds the thyme,
Little Maria weeds the thyme,
Andreas helps her.
Andreas helps her.
