Melnitsa - Korolevna (Королевна) (Englisch Übersetzung)

Englisch Übersetzung

Princess

Versionen : #1#2#3#4#5
I've sung of gods, and sung of heroes,
Of the clang of blades, and bloody battles;
So long as my falcon was by my side,
His chant to me was instead of prayers.
 
But a year has passed since he flew away -
An enchanted storm carried him away,
Dear friend was stolen by a blizzard
Which came from faraway lands.
 
And since that day I'm not myself,
And in the sky the seagulls keep wailing;
Within the fog my gaze can discern
Only the eyes the color of gentiana;
 
Oh, I wish I could see with falcon's eyes,
Raise in the air on falcon's wings,
In that foreign falcon's land,
Yet not in a dream, but somewhat nearer…
 
Bird, become my spirit,
Lend for a while a wind to my wings,
Every night I dream of flight –
Cold fjords, mile after mile;
 
Your sleeves are silk, princess,
Mounts embroidered with white heather,
I know I've never been there,
And if I have, it's been my own misfortune;
 
I wish I recalled all that which was
Not with you and not with me.
I'm tossed like a fallen leaf,
And my soul can find no peace;
 
You pay for a song with full moon,
The way others pay with hard coin;
In a distant land mantled by winter,
You are lovelier than spring,
And more intoxicating than summer…
 
Awaken, princess,
Don your feathers,
Let's fly through cold and rain,
The ice of your wrists is so thin…
 
Your sleeves are silk, princess,
Feathers embroidered with bright gold;
I laugh and soar into the sky,
I don't believe in me myself;
 
Come closer,
Let me touch your feathers;
Every night I see mountains,
Every morn I loose my sight;
 
Your sleeves are silk, princess,
Skies embroidered with shiny crescent;
Carry me away, north wind,
To the lands of pain and fable;
 
So hurts to know that all of that was
Not with you and not with me,
Time didn't stop
To glance inside carved window;
 
I was dreaming of you, my joy, at nights,
But you're clothed in a cloak of sorrow.
I, of course, will sing you a farewell,
But shall leave your home
With a ray of dawn…
 
Your dreams wander somewhere, princess…
Is spring long away from ancient herbs?
All is left to say
Are few words, too little,
Awaken, princess, don your feathers…
 
I know all too well that all of that was
Not with you and not with me,
Your grace wounds painfully,
Like an arrow over a bowstring;
 
You pay for a song with full moon,
The way others pay with hard coin;
I'd give everything to be with you,
But, perhaps, you don't even exist in this world…
 
You pay for a song with full moon,
The way others pay with ringing coin;
I'd give everything to be with you,
But, perhaps, you don't even exist in this world…
 
Princess…
