Original text and translations

English.png English text

Fair Phyllis I saw sitting all alone
Feeding her flock near to the mountainside.
The shepherds knew not whither she was gone,
But after her lover Amyntas hied.
Up and down he wandered whilst she was missing;
When he found her, O then they fell a kissing.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Helemaal alleen zag ik daar Fair Phyllis zitten
Terwijl ze haar kudde weide bij de heuvelrug.
De herders wisten niet waarheen ze was gegaan,
En zij haastte zich achter haar lief Amyntas aan.
Hij zwierf in alle richtingen terwijl ze weg was;
En toen hij haar vond, O, begonnen ze te kussen.

Translation by Jan Wyns

French.png French translation

La belle Phyllis j'ai vu, assise toute seule,
Faisant paître son troupeau près du flanc de la montagne.
Les bergers ne savaient pas où elle s'en était allé.
Mais à sa suite son amant, Amyntas, se hâta.
En haut, en bas, il erra pendant qu'elle était absente;
Quand il la trouva, o alors, ils fondirent en embrassade.

Translation by Janet Douguet

Poetic translation

Fair Phyllis sah ich bei der Felsenwand
hüten die Herde einsam und allein.
Die Hirten suchten, wo sie sich befand,
doch hinter der treuen Gefährtin drein
eilt' der Hirt Amyntas, der sie vermisste.
Als er sie fand, o wie er sie dann küsste!
Translation by Jan-Frerk Burmester

Closer to the original

Ich sah die schöne Phyllis ganz alleine sitzen
Und ihre Schafe am Berghang weiden.
Die Hirten wußten nicht, wohin sie gegangen war,
Aber der Verehrer Amyntas eilte ihr nach.
Er wanderte auf und ab,
solange sie verschollen war;
Als er sie fand,
O, dann fielen sie küssend nieder.

Translation by Peter Rottländer
