Moravské Drojzpĕvy (Moravian Duets) (Op. 32)


Velet', vtáčku

Veleť, vtáčku, veleť
přes te hore, dole,
Veleť, vtáčku, veleť
přes ten zábrdovské les,
Ach, kýž je mně možná,
ktomu věc podobná smým synečkem,
smým synečkem mluvit dnes!
A mně néní možná,
ani věc podobná,
a mně néní možná,
daleko sme vod sebe!
Ty můžeš mět hinó,
já také hiného,
zapomenem na sebe.
