Frühe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Früh steht der Jäger auf
Und beginnt den Tageslauf:
Das erste Licht auf's Büchsenkorn
Bringt mehr als ein ganzer Tagesborn:
Dämmer ist Wildes Braut,
Dämmer macht Wild vertraut, --
Was man früh angeseh'n,
Wird uns nicht leicht entgeh'n. 1

In the Early Morning

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The huntsman arises early
And begins his daily round:
The first light in the sight of the musket
Is worth more than a whole day's fount [of light].
The early light of dawning is the game's bride,
The early light of dawning makes the game trusting,--
What one spots in the early part of the day,
Will not easily get away1.
