A. 255. The Promised (Engaged)


(from Kotten)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

It was a Sunday toward evening,
There came to us the foreign lads.
There came to us the foreign lads.

And all the doors they broke for us,
And all the keys they discarded for us.
And all the keys they discarded for us.

Old mother prepared the evening meal,
Brought pigeons and chickens to it.
Brought pigeons and chickens to it.

'So eat my lads, for supper eat,
Do not forsake our girls.
Do not forsake our girls.

'As our girls are far too young,
And all are already promised long ago.
And all are already promised long ago.

'One is promised into the high country,
The other promised into the low country,
The third promised into our village.

"And to whom is beautiful Anne promised?"
'She is truly promised to Hans.'
'She is truly promised to Hans.'
