Дјевојка и коњ момачки

Language: Serbian (Српски)

Гдјено синоћ на конаку бјесмо,
Господску ти вечер' вечерасмо!
Лијепу ти дјевојку видјесмо!
За главом јој од бисера лале.
Ја јој дадох коња провађати,
Она коњу тихо говораше:
„Ој дорате гриве позлаћене!
„Је ли ти се господар женио?"
Коњиц њојзи вриском одговара:
„Ој Бога ми, лијепа дјевојко!
„Није ми се господар женио,
„Него мисли тобом о јесени,
„О јесени која прва дође."
Тад' дјевојка дору говораше:
„Да ја знадем да је то истина
„Ја бих моје павте расковала,
„Па бих твоју узду оковала,
„У чисто бих сребро оковала,
„А ђерданом мојим позлатила."

Das liebende Mädchen

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

Als wir gestern in der Herberg' waren,
Speisten wir ein herrlich Abendessen,
Und wir sahn ein schönes Mädchen stehen,
Auf dem Haupt ein Kranz von Perlentulpen.
Und ich gab mein Roß ihr, es zu führen,
Da zum Rosse sprach das Mädchen flüsternd:
"Sag mir, Brauner, mit den goldnen Mähnen,
Sag mir, hat Dein Herr sich schon vermählet? - 
Und das Roß entgegnete ihr wiehernd:
"Nein, beim Himmel! noch nicht, schönes Mädchen,
Ist mein Herr vermählet; doch im Herbste,
Nächsten Herbst denkt Dich er heimzuführen."
Und das Mädchen sprach zum Braunen freudig:
"Wenn ich wüßte, daß dies Wahrheit wäre,
Möcht' ich meine Spangen gleich zerschmelzen,
Deinen Halfter Dir damit beschlagen,
Mit dem reinen Silber es beschlagen;
Und mit meinem Halsschmuck es vergolden."
