Smutna rzeka

Language: Polish (Polski)

Rzeko z cudzoziemców strony,
Czemu nurt twój tak zmącony?
Czy się gdzie zapadły brzegi,
Czy stopniały stare, stare śniegi?

Leżą w górach stare śniegi,
Kwiatem kwitną moje brzegi,
Ale tam, przy źródle moim,
Płacze matka nad mym zdrojem.

Siedem córek piastowała,
Siedem córek zakopała,
Siedem córek śród ogrodu,
Głowami przeciwko wschodu, wschodu.

Teraz się z duchami wita,
O wygody dziatki pyta
I mogiły ich polewa,
I żałośne pieśni śpiewa.
