B. 023. The Dearest Brother-in-law


(From Anton and from many villages)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

What have I now learned new?
My dearest, he wants to leave me.
But I gave him the good advice:
Stay yet here this little year.

'If I remain with you yet here this little year,
Then I will spend all on you.
What you keep secret and consume here,
That I will pay all for you.

'Now, my dear, I must be departing,
If you will present me,
Give me a brown steed,
I go forth into the war.

Tell me, tell me, my dear,
When will you then come back again?
'Girl, that I cannot tell you,
I myself do not yet know it.

As a half year now came to the end,
He pulled out of the war for home.
The girl truly stood on the threshold
In a fine long clothes to the ground.

'God help you, you beautiful maid!
Is the situation yet as it once was?
The situation can truly be the same
But I have a different dear.

He sits in the room behind the table
And looks out after me.
'I am the knight so bold and daring,
And I will shoot him for you.

Don't shoot, don't shoot, my dearest,
That is my youngest brother!
'Then, if that is your youngest brother,
Then he is my brother-in-law so dear.
