1. Rede, Mädchen, allzu liebes[sung text checked 1 time]
Rede, Mädchen, allzu liebes,
das mir in die Brust, die kühle,
hat geschleudert mit dem Blicke
diese wilden Glutgefühle!

Willst du nicht dein Herz erweichen,
willst du, eine Überfromme,
rasten ohne traute Wonne,
oder willst du, daß ich komme?

Rasten ohne traute Wonne,
nicht so bitter will ich büßen.
Komme nur, du schwarzes Auge.
Komme, wenn die Sterne grüßen.

1.
Sê, my meisie, allerliefste,
jy, wat in my bors, eens koel,
met net één kyk aangesteek het
daardie wilde gloed-gevoel:

Wil jy nie jou hart versag nie?
Wil jy dan, te vroom, en dwaas,
vasbyt sonder knus plesier – of
moet ek my na jou toe haas?

Vasbyt sonder knus plesiertjies?
Nie so bitter wil ek boet!
Kom, jy met die donker ogies,
kom, wanneer die sterre groet.

Die lieflike jong meisie

Nou vra ek, groen gekronkel,
hoekom wil jy nie boontoe mik?

Hoe kan die klimop opklim

Hoe kan die meisie glimlag as

Ein kleiner, hübscher Vogel
nahm den Flug

da gab es Obst genug.
Wenn ich ein hübscher,

Leimruten-Arglist

der arme Vogel
konnte nicht mehr fort.
Wenn ich ein hübscher,

Der Vogel kam
in eine schöne Hand,
da tat es ihm,

Wenn ich ein hübscher,

ʼn Pragtige klein voëltjie
vlieg te graag
na tuine waar
die vrugte soeter smaak.
As ek ʼn pragtige klein
voëltjie was,
sou ek ook graag
presies soos die een maak.

ʼn Voëlwip het hom egter
beetgekry,
toe was die arme voëltjie
nie meer vry.
As ek ʼn pragtige klein
voëltjie was,
sou ek weer dink,
en dan nie maak soos hy.

Die voëltjie sit toe in
ʼn skone hand,
maar gee nie om
om so volmaak te land.
As ek ʼn pragtige klein
voëltjie was,
vloog ek ook graag
in so ʼn handjie vas.

Wohl schön bewandt
War es vorehe
Mit meinem Leben,

Wenn ich dem Kalten
Auch noch so dicht
Vor'm Auge stehe,
Es merkt's sein Auge,

Hoe mooi gesteld
was dit eenkeer
tog met my lewe,
en ook my liefde:
Deur ʼn muur – meer! –
ja, deur tien
mure het hy, my vriend,
my nog gesien.
Maar nou – ellende! –
die koue vis,
al staan ek vóór
hom, sien sy oog
my nie, sy hart
wil my nie hoor.

ʼn Pikdonker skag is die liefde,

net dink aan die feeste gehou,
net kerm van die pyn en berou.

Nicht wandle, mein Licht, dort außen

Die Füße würden dir, die zarten,

All überströmt sind dort die Wege,

das Auge mir.

Gaan stap nie, my lig, in die veld,
ook nié in die woud!
Jou fyn-fyn voetjies sal seker
sopnat word en koud.

Die water oorspoel selfs die koppies,
loop wyd en hoog;
so sterk loop die stroom van die trane,
my oë sy oog.

solank ek leef.
