The Rosensfoal

The Rosensfoal wouldn't eat grain
-the saddle was adorned with marble and precious stones-
unless it was given in silver horns.
-he runs (wrestles) in his reins of silk-

They restrained him with nine locks
-the saddle was adorned with marble and precious stones-
the Rosensfoal broke all nine of them
-he runs (wrestles) in his reins of silk-

The Rosensfoal leaped into the water and swam
-the saddle was adorned with marble and precious stones-
it was fifteen miles ere he came to shore
-he runs (wrestles) in his reins of silk-

Were it not for the laws of man
-the saddle was adorned with marble and precious stones-
I would have buried the Rosenfoal in consecrated ground
-he runs (wrestles) in his reins of silk-

These verses are from a long ballad which talks about the Rosensfoal, a magnificent horse which belongs to a young and beautiful lady. When the lady travels to the other shore of a great fjord (presumably by getting married) the horse breaks free of all restraints in an attempt to follow her, even leaping into the water and swimming for fifteen miles before finally arriving at her new home. The lady receives the faithful animal with joy only to despair at his death on the following morning, as the horse dies from overexertion.
