English translation

Cornet Peter Kulfeld

Here he rides now in the dark
Over the mountains in a cold night
Among Armfeldt's swedish soldiers (1a)
Cornet Peter Kulfeld moves forward (1)
He's struggling with the cold
he's struggling with the wind
As he wildly and eagerly bites
his already whitened cheeks
So he is cradled into sleep
Jack frost requires a price
Cornet Peter Kulfeld
Falls asleep in a bed of ice
So he falls asleep there
Many memories of his life
Cornet Peter Kulfeld
from Jämtland company (3)
High on horseback
He had waged war for sixteen years
Bursting out in the foremost front
he charged, felled men with his sword
He was invincible to bullets
Invincible to blows
But now the cold wreaks havoc
Violently takes hold of his heart
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
