Hajsi, vy siví volci

Language: Czech (Čeština)

Hajsi, vy siví volci,
bedlivo orajte,
nic vy sa k olšině
nic neohledajte!
Ode tvrdéj země
pluh mi odskakuje,
strakatej fěrtúšek
listím pobleskuje.
Gdo tam na mne čeká,
nech rači zkamení,
moja chorá hlava
v jednom je plameni.

Ohé! Mes bœufs gris

Language: French (Français) after the Czech (Čeština)

Ohé! Mes bœufs gris,
labourez attentivement,
ne vous tournez point
du côté de la charmille !
Ma charrue saute
sur la terre dure,
un tablier bariolé par moments
luit à travers les feuillages.
Que celle qui m'attend,
se change plutôt en pierre,
ma pauvre tête malade
n'est qu'une flamme.
