A. 301. The Coachman


(from Wittichenau)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

'All people lie in sleep,
But I must drive out in the night.'

'Though I must drive out in the night,
And into the dark evening.'

'Which star shined the brightest,
Shines (on) the hills, the valleys all.'

'Shines (on) the hills, the valleys all,
Shines also (on) my beloved.'

As the morning turns to day,
The lord also begins to call out:

"Get up for me now, you my coachman
And feed the horses for me.

'The feed, that my two Brown chew,
That lays on my charge - yes there.'

'My darling that sleeps on the one hand
And on the other there is the wreath.'

'As much as I reluctantly call the dearest awake,
As much as reluctantly I awaken the dearest!

'And that is also our speech,
From Father and from the Mother also:"

'All kings and princes strike it off,
And her sweetheart also confesses it.'

'And her sweetheart also confesses it,
On that he loves her all alone.'
