Марина клешва

Language: Serbian (Српски)

Мајка Мару кроз три горе звала;
Кроз три звала, кроз четири дала;
Мара јој се кроз девет одзива:
„Јеси л', Маро, убелила платно?" –
„Нисам, мајко, ни до воде дошла,
„A камо ли убелила платно!
„Јово ми је воду замутио;
„Кун' га, мајко, и ја ћу га клети:
„Еда Бог да, те се обесио!
„О злу дрву о мом белу грлу;
„Тавница му моја недра била;
„Еда Бог да, синџира допао!
„Синџир биле моје беле руке;
„Еда Бог да, вода га однела!
„Моја мајко на ме га нанела!”

Ruft die Mutter, ruft der Tochter

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

Ruft die Mutter, ruft der Tochter
Über drei Gebirge:
"Ist, o Mara, liebe Tochter,
Ist gebleicht das Linnen?"
Ihr zurück die junge Tochter
Über neun Gebirge:
"Nicht in's Wasser, liebe Mutter,
Taucht' ich noch das Linnen,
Denn, o sieh', es hat das Wasser
Jawo mir getrübet. -
Wie dann erst, o liebe Mutter,
Hätt' ich es gebleicht schon!
Fluch' ihm, Mutter, liebe Mutter!
Ich auch will ihm fluchen.
Gäbe Gott im hellen Himmel,
Daß er sich erhänge -
An ein böses Bäumchen hänge,
An den weißen Hals mir!
Gäbe Gott im hellen Himmel,
Daß er lieg' gefangen -
Lieg' gefangen tief im Kerker,
An der weißen Brust mir!
Gäbe Gott, der Herr im Himmel,
Daß er Ketten trage -
Ketten trage, festgeschlungen,
Meine weißen Arme!
Gäbe Gott im hellen Himmel,
Daß ihn nähm' das Wasser -
Daß ihn nähm' das wilde Wasser,
Mir in's Haus ihn bringe!"
