Johann und Hanne konnten kaum
vor Liebesglut die Daemmerung erwarten
und schlichen sich in ebendiesen Garten
von ungefaehr an ebendiesen Apfelbaum.

A creak disturbs the heavy calm,
A man comes out and scans the street,
A woman follows in alarm;
She stretched her imploring arm,
"Stay here, Johannes!" her lips repeat.
"Johannes" by Hristo Smirnenski

"Johannes, why did you go away?"
In despair and sorrow complete.
The fog hangs heavy in the street,
The early morn is cold and grey…
"Johannes" by Hristo Smirnenski
At the barricade he is unknown,
And no one asks what is his name.
Johannes creeps behind a stone,
An old man there has crouched alone,
Shooting like one who knows his aim.
"Johannes" by Hristo Smirnenski
The ranks of hussars come very close,
Johannes firmly clutches his gun,
He stands upright to face the foes,
And cries out: "Come, I'll meet your blows!
Come, you sons of crime, I will not run…
