Нема љепоте без вијенца

Language: Serbian (Српски)

Млада нева воду нела,
На воду се надводила,
Сама себе беседила:
"Јао јадна! лепа ти сам!
"Још да ми је зелен венац,
"Још би јадна лепша била;
"Љубила би чобанина,
"Чобанина Костадина,
"Који шеће пред овцама,
"Кано месец пред звездама."

Armes Kind

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

Wasser trug das junge Mädchen,
Neigte sich zum Wasser nieder,
Sagte zu sich selbst die Worte:
"Armes Kind! Wie bist so schön du!
Hättest du ein grünes Kränzlein,
Wärst du, Arme, noch viel schöner!
Möchte wohl den Hirten lieben,
Constantin, den jungen Hirten,
Der dahergeht vor den Schafen,
Wie der Mond geht vor den Sternen!"
