"Rise, widow, rise with the dawn of day,
"And was thy face from sorrow's stain;
"To God with an humble spirit pray.
"And he will a husband give thee again."

At the third stood the Maiden, & from her head
Plucked the wreath of flowers, and sighing said:

'The stream flows on, low means the wind,

  • Show God! a husband to me bestow;
Perchance at a husband's side reclined,
Pure happiness by I yet may know?

"Pluck not thy wreath, the time is nigh,
"When a lovely youth shall appear for thee;
"Do these on the will of God rely,
"And many the days of they bliss shall be."

*The word in the original is Bog which signifies God,
and is also a river, which river (the Bog) is known to
have been worshipped as a God by the Ancient Sclavonians,
and still retains that venerated name. The
Three Fountains addressed in the song, by the three females
may be considered as the springs whence
the Bog takes its rise. Therefore in concordance
with the antique tenor of the song we think
that the river Deity, and not the God of
Christians is meant.
