Dwojaki koniec

Language: Polish

Rok się kochali, a wiek się nie widzieli,
Zbolały serca, oboje na pościeli.
Leży dziewczyna wkomnacie swej na łożu,
A kozak leży w dąbrowie na rozdrożu!

O! nad dziewczyną rodziny całej płacze,
A nad kozakiem, och! siwy orzeł kracze.
Oboje biedni, wnętrz ności ogień pali!
Cierpieli srodze, cierpieli i skonali.

O! nad dziewczyną po siole dzwony biją,
A nad kozakiem po lesie wilki wyją.
Kości dziewczyny grób zamkna'ł poświęcony,
Kości kozaka bieleją na wsze strony.

Notes about green, red, and white dots

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
