Daughter of Colla! thou art low!"

Language: English

"Daughter of Colla! thou art low!" 
said Cairbar's hundred bards. 
"Silence is at the blue streams of Seláma. 
Truthil's race have failed. 

When wilt thou rise in thy beauty, 
first of Erin's maids? 
Thy sleep is long in the tomb. 
The morning distant far. 

The sun shall not come 
to thy bed and say, Awake, 
Dar-thula! awake, 
thou first of women! 
the wind of spring is abroad. 

The flowers shake their heads 
on the green hills. 
The woods wave 
their growing leaves. 

Retire, O sun!
the daughter of Colla is asleep. 
She will not come forth in her beauty. 
She will not move in the steps of her loveliness."

Mädchen von Kola, du schläfst!

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Mädchen von Kola, du schläfst!
Um dich schweigen die blauen Ströme Selmas!
Sie trauren um dich, den letzten Zweig
von Thruthils Stamm!

Wann [erstehst]1 du wieder in deiner Schöne?
Schönste der [Mädchen]2 in Erin!
Du schläfst im Grabe langen Schlaf,
dein Morgenrot ist ferne!

Nimmer, o nimmer kommt [mehr]3 die Sonne
weckend an deine Ruhestätte: "Wach auf!
Wach auf, Darthula!
Frühling ist draußen!

"Die Lüfte säuseln, 
Auf grünen Hügeln,  holdseliges Mädchen, 
Weben die Blumen!
Im Hain wallt sprießenden Laub!"

Auf immer, auf immer, so [weiche denn]4, Sonne,
Dem Mädchen von Kola, sie schläft!
Nie ersteht sie wieder in ihrer Schöne!
Nie siehst du sie lieblich wandeln mehr.
