Original text and translations

German.png German text

Die grüne Hopfenranke, sie schlängelt auf der Erde hin.
Die junge, schöne Dirne, so traurig ist ihr Sinn!
Du höre, grüne Ranke! Was hebst du dich nicht himmelwärts?
Du höre, schöne Dirne! Was ist so schwer dein Herz?
Wie hobe sich die Ranke, der keine Stütze Kraft verleiht
Wie wäre die Dirne fröhlich, wenn ihr der Liebste weit?

English.png English translation

The green hop-vine creeps along the ground.
The beautiful young maiden — so sorrowful is her heart!
Listen, green vine, why don’t you climb toward the heavens?
Listen, beautiful maiden, why is your heart so heavy?
How can a vine climb that has no support to hold it up?
How could the maiden be happy if her lover is far away?

Translation by Cayuga Vocal Ensemble, (with minor alterations)
