Kapitulation

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)

Hinterm Berge, [hinterm]1 grünen,
Tönt ein heller Schrei zu Zeiten,
Knabe [gehet hin]2, zu forschen.
Ist ein Mädchen angebunden
Fest an einem Seidenfädchen.
Und sie fleht zum [jungen]3 Knaben:
"Bind mich los, du Heldenjüngling,
Schwesterchen will ich dir sein!"
[Aber ihr versetzt der Knabe]3:
"Hab' 'ne Schwester schon zu Hause!" --
"Bind mich los, du Heldenjüngling,
Schwägerin will ich dir sein!" --
[Knabe wiederum entgegnet]3:
"Hab' 'ne [Schwägerin]4 zu Hause!" --
"Binde los mich, Heldenjüngling,
Liebchen will ich [dir]5 sein!" --
Und es küßte sie der Knabe,
Küßte sie, und sie erlösend,
Führt' er sie zum [weißen]3 [Hofe]6.

Capitulation

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Derrière la montagne, derrière la verte,
On entend un cri aigu parfois,
Le garçon y va pour enquêter.
Une jeune fille est attachée
Solidement avec un fil de soie.
Et elle supplie le jeune garçon :
« Détache-moi, jeune homme héroïque,
Je serai ta sœur ! »
Mais le garçon lui réplique :
« J'ai déjà une sœur à la maison ! »
« Détache-moi, jeune homme héroïque,
Je serai ta belle-sœur ! » --
Le garçon répond à nouveau :
« J'ai une belle-sœur à la maison ! » --
« Détache-moi, jeune homme héroïque,
Je serai ta bien-aimée ! » --
Et le garçon l'embrassa,
L'embrassa, et la sauvant,
La conduisit jusqu'à la cour blanche.
