B. 004. The Choice of the Virgin


(from Maja Rubyn in Burk)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

Two beauties went along the sea,
Went along the deep sea.
Went along the deep sea.

No one met the same,
Except a single ferryman.
Except a single ferryman.

'Ferryman, you my dear ferryman
Tell me, what do you take from people for pay?
Tell me, what do you take from people for pay?

"From the old I take silver and gold,
I transport young girls for free.
I transport young girls for free.

They go out into the middle of the deep,
The ferryman asked the girls.
The ferryman asked the girls.

"Tell me, what would you like, O beautiful maid.
Jump into the water or have me?
Jump into the water or have me?

'Jump into the water and plunge off,
Then I come to my mother's home.
Then I come to my mother's home.

'There I can go in green little crowns.
Going in little diamond wreaths.
Going in little diamond wreaths.
