A. 232. Four Lampoons

Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

The magpie jumps around the miller
Asks for a little piece of bread.
The miller has drowned the ax
And the wife grinds at home.

May your grinding, as you grind
If it only goes "klipperklappaer" (rattle)
There from Ranitz Tzschenche's Lenchen
Lift the legs up in the air.

You my dearest finch
Fly into my net.
A half-hour before the sun
The midwife carried in a little son.

Rejoice yourself my little brother, my little Hans
We roast strawberries tomorrow
Rabbit jumps on one foot
Yet he is unhurt.
