Potkal sem mladou cigánku

Language: Czech (Čeština)

Potkal sem mladou cigánku,
nesla se jako laň,
přes prsa černé lelíky
a oči bez dna zhlaň.
Pohledla po mně zhluboka,
pak vznesla sa přes peň,
a tak mi v hlavě ostala
přes celučký, celučký deň.

Ich traf eine junge Zigeunerin

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Czech (Čeština)

Ich traf eine junge Zigeunerin,
Leicht schritt sie wie ein Reh,
Schwarz auf der Brust die Zöpfe,
Das Auge ein finstrer See.
So hat sie tief mich angeblickt,
Bis flink sie davonsprang
Und blieb mir so im Kopf zurück
Wohl Nacht und Tag, Nacht und Tag lang.
