Beautiful lassies, we are you now? 

You who don't answer me anymore 

You who forgot all about me; 

Left me behind — now my weakened voice 

Wakes up the echo in vain. 

Have you been eaten by angry beasts? 

Or by your lovers you're being kept? 

Go on, answer me dearest, 

I fell in love with you and I came 

Down to meet with you here. 

I caught a glimpse of you naked when 

You were bathing in a clear lake. 

And I came down thinking not 

Of who you are - daughters of the moon 

I - who am black robin's son.
