"Erdő mélyén hűs fák alatt
Piros rózsaszál most fakad
Erdő mélyén hűs hajnalon
Felelj, hol vagy, szép Szulikóm?"
I was looking for my sweetheart's grave,
And longing was tearing my heart.
Without love my heart felt heavy -
Where are you, my Suliko?
Among fragrant roses, in the shadow,
Brightly a nightingale sang his song.
There I asked the nightingale
Where he had hidden Suliko.
Suddenly the nightingale fell silent
And softly touched the rose with the beak:
"You have found what you are looking for", he said,
In an eternal sleep Suliko is resting here."
