Ein wolf sîne sünde vlôch

Language: Mittelhochdeutsch

Ein wolf sîne sünde vlôch,
in ein klôster er sich zôch,
er wolde geistlîchen leben.
dô hiez man in der schâfe pflegen.
Sît wart er unstaete.
dô beiz er schâf unde swîn.
er jach, daz ez des pfaffen rüde taete.

Art läßt nicht von Art

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Mittelhochdeutsch

Ein Wolf, den Sündenangst bewog,
zurück sich in ein Kloster zog.
Ihm dünkt' ein geistlich Leben gut,
man gab die Schafe ihm zur Hut:
Da ändert' er sein Wesen.
Er biß die Schaf' und Schweine tot
und sprach, des Pfaffen Hund sei es gewesen.
