Što si, goro, povjaxnala (Pazardžiško, Bulgaria; arr. Koutev)

"Forest, why have you faded and withered? Has frost covered you, green forest, or has fire burned you?"

"Frost has not covered me, nor has fire burned me. But last night, three chains of young slaves passed through: the first chain, all fine young men, the second chain, young women, and the third chain, mothers who had to leave their children."

"Not from fire or frost, but from grief has the green forest faded and withered."
