Treasure Island

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

(1729-1781 / Germany)

An Die Schwalbe

Die 12te Ode Anakreons.

Schwatzhafteste der Schwalben, sprich,
Was tu ich dir? wie straf ich dich?
Soll ich dich um die Schwingen
Mit meiner Schere bringen?
Soll ich, zu deiner Pein,
Ein andrer Tereus sein?
Und willst du gern der Progne gleichen?
Musst du, zu fruehe Schwaetzerin,
Musst du von meiner Schaeferin
Mir meinen schoenen Traum verscheuchen?

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
