A. 042. A Charming Behavior Has the Advantage.

(From Meltheuer)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

A fresh green poplar tree
Stands in the middle of Rachlau,
Ho he!
Stands in the middle of Rachlau.

On the poplar tree there sits,
A nightingale, a small bird,
Ho he!
A nightingale, a small bird.

The nightingale flies back and forth
In the maiden’s new yard,
Ho he!
In the maiden’s new yard.

On to her bright window,
On to her white bed,
Ho he!
On to her white bed.

“I bring you a message,
Your loved one is dead,
Ho he!
Your loved one is dead.’

Oh, the maiden cried so bitterly,
Wringing her white hands,
Ho he!
Wringing her white hands.

Maiden, be quiet, don’t cry,
There are still enough youths ,
Ho he!
There are still enough youths.

A thousand times still nicer,
A thousand times still richer,
Ho he!
A thousand times still richer.

“There still might be enough youths,
But no one is like what,
Ho he!
My departed loved one was.”

“His face was not so handsome,
But his behavior was beautiful,
Ho he!
But his behavior was beautiful.”
