Dornröschen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im tiefen Wald im Dornenhag,
da schläft die Jungfrau hundert Jahr,
es schläft die Flieg an der Wand,
in dem Schloß
Hund und Roß,
es schläft wohl auf dem Herd der Brand.

Der Ritter zog sein Schwert da frisch
und hieb sich ab das Dorngebüsch,
und ging hinein ins Königshaus,
ins Kämmerlein
zum Bettelein,
küßt auf den Mund die schlafende Braut.

Da wacht das schöne Mägdelein,
schenkt ihm ir feines Ringelein,
die Flieg erwachet an der Wand,
in dem Schloß
Hund und Roß,
auf dem Herd erwacht der Feuerbrand.

Sleeping Beauty

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the deep wood, in a thicket of thorn,
A maiden asleep for a hundred years,
The fly asleep on the wall,
In the castle
Hound and steed,
Even the fire sleeps on the hearth.

A knight drew his sword afresh
And cutting his way through the thorn bush,
Went into the castle,
Into the bedchamber,
To the tiny bed,
And kissed the mouth of the sleeping bride.

The beautiful maiden awoke,
And gave him her dainty little ring,
The fly on the wall stirred,
In the castle
Hound and steed also,
And the fire rekindled upon the hearth.
