The Wicked Sister

A mother lived by the North Sea shore
Daughters were the babes she bore
One grew radiant as the sun
Darkly grew the elder one

A knight came riding to their door
He travelled far to be their wooer
He courted both with gold and rings
But loved the younger o’er all things

“Sister, won’t you walk with me
To watch the ships sail o’er the sea?”
As they walked the rocky shore
The dark one pushed her sister o’er

“Sister, sister, let me live
All that’s mine I’ll surely give”
“Thy bridegroom I will take and more
But thou shalt never come ashore”

Off she floated like a swan
The salt sea bore her body on
You could not see her lily feet
Her golden fringes were so deep

A minstrel walking by the strand
Saw her body float to land
When he looked that lady on
He sighed and made a heavy moan

He made a harp of her breastbone
Whose sound would melt a heart of stone
Took the strands of her bright hair
And with them strung his harp so rare

He brought the harp to the wedding hall
There to play before them all
When they set it on a stone
The harp began to play alone

The strings sang out a dreadful sound
“The bride her younger sister drowned
Now her secret you all know
Her guilty tears will surely flow”

Kätki ümber soo ja sammal
kidur maa ja mulla meel
põllunõlvad, metsaääred
mõisaluhad, laaned teel.

Ojake kes sulle ütles
kus on meri, kodumaa ?
tuhat ringi, tuhat kääru
ei see tee küll otsa saa.

Siiski sulin, siiski vulin
ei nii ikka edasi
ojake, kes sulle ütles
ära vaata tagasi.

Rakkus käed, õnn nii kidur
vaevasammal, muresoo
muld on toit ja muld on lõbu
kustutas nii eluhoo.

Aatepõllud, mõttemetsad
ei see tee küll otsa saa
luhad. laaned, süda, valgus
talulaps miks tõttad sa ?

Talulaps sa väike oja
koduoja, ojake
tuhat ringi, tuhat kääru,
süda, jäta järele.

Ojake kes sul ütles
kus on meri, kodumaa ?
tuhat ringi, tuhat kääru
ei see tee küll otsa saa.

Tuhat ringi, tuhat kääru
ei nii ikka edasi
talulaps ja oja süda
need ei vaata tagasi.

Need ei vaata tagasi
Need ei vaata tagasi
Need ei vaata tagasi
Need ei vaata tagasi
Need ei vaata tagasi
