B. 028. All Effort is Awarded


(from Burk)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

Girl that cuts the green grass,
It is also thick, It is also thick cutting grass.

She had cut enough grass,
Then came her beloved, then came her beloved near to help her.

'I have cut the grass without help,
Will without help, will without help load the same.

The little sister asked the brother,
What then the girl, what then the girl had said?

"It was said well enough
Yesterday it was one, yesterday it was one another engaged.

"I have loved her seven years,
Now she has another, now she has another rogue she woos.

"I have bought her much at the fair,
But received, but received her I have not.

Must I beat me and also be dragged about her,
She must become mine and mine must she become certainly mine.

You make yourself beaten and drag also to me,
Then will I never and never will I truly never be yours.

"Will you me, will you never have me
Then can you in the, then can you go in the spruce for me.

There is no music for this song.

Note: I believe spruce wood was used to make coffins.
