Englisch Übersetzung

From Gradacac's white tower of Dragon of Bosnia

From Gradacac's white tower
of Dragon of Bosnia
Falcons chant
notes of sorrow:
Faithful love, died
of Husein Beg
'cos she lost the lord
of her heart
Saddled his black stallion
Husein-Captain has
Rode off to Romanija
to fight a battle.
On the tower, his faithful love,
Allah illa-llah,
prayed she has, cried she has,
awaited the voice.
Below casements,
herald arrived, heart-broken.
Remarry, beloved one,
your beg is no more.
of love and sorrow
by her window
her aching heart burst
she'll have no other
Of Husejnija-mosque minaret
muezzin recites,
of the towers and ramparts
crying are the hawks
Till Istanbul echo goes
of notes of sorrow
barren became the white tower
of Dragon of Bosnia

Sa Gradačca Bijele Kule

Sa Gradačca, b'jele kule Zmaja od Bosne
Sokolovi zakliktali kajde žalosne:
Umrla je vjerna ljuba Husein-begova,
Jer izgubi gospodara srca svojega.
Osedl'o je vranca svoga Husein-kapetan
Odjezdio Romaniji, podijelit' mejdan.
Na čardaku vjerna ljuba-Allah, illa-llah,
klanjala je, plakala je, haber čekala.

BTW: A Beg is a title; I think equivalent of "Duke", in modern Turkish it means "mister". In modern Bosnian it is used as attribute to describe wealth or power (master of his domain). eg Lives like a Beg.
Captain Husein (nicknamed Dragon of Bosnia) led the uprising of Bosnian people; to get more autonomy inside Ottoman Empire (1830s).
