How goes the night ?
It is not yet midnight.
The torch is blazing in the court-yard.
My princely men are arriving ; –
There is the tinkling of their bells.

How goes the night ?
The night is not yet through.
The torch is growing pale in the court-yard.
My princely men are arriving ; –
There is the sound of their bells, regular and near.

How goes the night ?
It is getting towards morning.
The torch is smoking in the court-yard.
My princely men are arriving ; –
I see their banners.
