Ich hôrte ûf der heide
(Heinrich von Morungen)
Ich hôrte ûf der heide
lûte stimme und süezen sanc.
Dâ von wart ich beide
fröiden rîch und an trûren kranc.
Nâch der mîn gedanc sêre ranc unde swanc,
die vant ich ze tanze, dâ si sanc.
Âne leide ich dô spranc.
 Ich vant sî verbogen
eine und ie wengel von trehen naz,
dâ si an dem morgen
mînes tôdes sich vermaz.
Der vil lieben haz tuot mir baz danne daz,
dô ich ir kniewete, dâ si saz
und ir sorgen vergaz.
Ich vant si an der zinne
eine, und ich was zuo zir gesant.
Dâ mehte ichs ir minne
wol mit vuoge hân gepfant.
Dô wânde ich diu lant hân verbrant sâ zehant,
wan daz mich ir süezen minne bant
an den sinnen hât erblant.

I heard in the Meadows

I.I heard in the meadows,
Light voices and sweet singing,
Thereby I became both,
Rich in joy and weak in grief.
And she who my thoughts embraced in circles.
I found her dancing where she sang,
Without pain I then jumped in the dance.
II.I found her in hiding,
Alone and her cheeks were wet with tears,
When she in the morning,
Threatened me with my death.
But the hatred of the much beloved one
Was dearer to me than ever,
When I knelt to her where she sat,
And she forgot all her worries.
III.I found her in the roof chamber,
Alone, and I was sent to her,
There I had the power to win
A token of her love in a just way,
Then I thought I could surround the lands with flames,
If not for the ties of her sweet love,
Blinding my senses.
