In your lamb's fur you saunter about ;
In your fox's fur you hold your court.
How should I not think anxiously about you ?
My toiled heart is full of grief.

In your lamb's fur you wander aimlessly about ;
In your fox's fur you appear in your hall.
How should I not think anxiously about you ?
My heart is wounded with sorrow.

Your lamb's fur, as if covered with ointment ;
Glistens when the sun comes forth.
How should I not think anxiously about you ?
To the core of my heart I am grieved.
