A. 003. A Tragic Wedding


Translated by Joel Meador

1. The boys made ready to go to the wedding,
And saddled all the little horses with flair.

2. They put on jingling spurs,
And rode together across the same field.

3. The crows were flying back and forth,
And their awful cawing echoed downwards.

4. The crows were flying back and forth,
They were cawing a little song of death and the grave.

5. The bridegroom is going to take a tumble from his horse,
He will suffer a broken neck and a fractured skull.

6. They are riding there through the first part of the field,
Then the bridegroom fell from the horse.

7. The bridegroom fell from the horse,
Breaking his neck and cracking his skull.

8. The bells are beginning to ring for the first time
Then the bride to be inquires about her groom.

9. What have you done, what have you done with my fiancé,
That he is nowhere to be seen among you?

10. The bridegroom is in a new little chamber (coffin),
Only he has put on colorful clothing.

11. The bells are ringing for the second time,
Then the bride to be questions the modest young maidens.

12. What have you done with my bridegroom, where is he,
That he is nowhere to be seen among you?

13. The bridegroom is in a new little chamber (coffin),
With his shiny sword fastened around him.

14. The bells toll for the third time,
Then the bride inquires again about the betrothed.

15. What have you done with my fiancé,
That I do not see him anywhere among you?
16. Your fiancé took a fall from his horse,
He broke his neck and cracked his skull.

17. Now the colorful clothes are ripped off,
And his body is covered with a white garment.

18. And with that this will now be a sad day and a sorrowful year,
I’ll be going to the church with a green wreath.

19. And go to the church with a green wreath,
And never forget, he who loved me.
