Three Songs for voice and piano
|1. Berjoskele (Little Birch Tree): Text by David Einhorn
Quietly shaking its curly green head
I came here alone from a distant land;
From the far west a delicate ray of rose-hued light
From the distant field came a gentle breeze
2. Trala-la-lo (Daisies): Text by Salman Schneour
In the little meadow, by the brook, there they grew.
Along came Chavele dreamily walking, her golden plaits fluttering in
A gangly youth approached her, his locks as black as coal.
What are you looking for, girl, what have you lost, what do you wish
to find in the grass?
Are you still looking? I have already found the most beautiful daisy
in the meadow,
Oh, leave me, itís not permitted, mother says one shouldnít!
Do you love me? -I love you. Are you embarrassed? - Iím embarrassed.
The sun has set, the boy has vanished, yet
3. A Maydle in di Yorn (I am a Maiden - No Longer Young)
I am already a maiden in my late years, why do you confuse me?
