Translation

(continues from A 5)

a1the noble one does not care about my conduct either. [But] anytime she stretches her arm when she serves me, she pulls [me] onto her lap, as it were. The jewelry upon her breasts hardly moves,
a1+it merely is lifted a little.
a2But even though she is shy, she nevertheless gladdens my heart with love.
a2+Who may she be?
a3Is she the sister, the daughter, or the wife, or the servant of the mechanic, or has she come to him as a guest, just like me?
a3+(But) a guest would not have been charged to pay honour to [another] guest.
a4+But very much the mechanic has shown his trust in me that he has left a girl so beautiful alone with me.
a5+And the painter [says to himself]: By my passion she shall (not be aggrieved(?));
a6he yawns and is about to stretch out his hand.
a6+Thus (he thinks) to himself while looking at the girl.
b1|| In the A.-tune: || But no! Love has arrived in person, in order to confuse me by his own face ...
b1+What if perhaps she had seated herself right before [lit. manifestly] me to honour me?
b2As long as I don’t speak to [lit. honour] her with heart-felt affection [lit. honour], my dream [that] this gentle one serves me, does not get spoilt yet.
b3Again he thinks:
b3+Seeing the great danger, the wise ones are not allowed here to profess love to ten kinds of women.
b4Thus it is said:
b5+to the royal spouse, to the father’s spouse, to the spouse of a general, to that of a relative, to that of the teacher, to an exceedingly adulatory woman, to a woman thinking of profit, to a woman available to many, and mainly (to a beautiful)

a1[But] anytime she stretches her arm when she serves me, she pulls [me] onto her lap, as it were. (cf 9; 258) (Peyrot 2013b: 251)
a1[Wenn] sie den Arm reckt, indem sie [mich] bedient, zieht [wtl. nimmt] sie [mich] gleichsam in [ihren] Schoß. (Schmidt 1974: 408)
a1+Das Geschmeide auf ihren Brüsten bewegt sich kaum, es hebt sich eben nur. (Schmidt 1974: 77, 277, 294)
a2Aber [wenn sie] auch schüchtern [ist], [so] macht sie doch mein Herz von Liebe froh. (Schmidt 1974: 505)
a2+Who may she be? Is she the sister, the daughter, or the wife, or the servant of the mechanic, or has she come to him as a guest, just like me? (cf 9; 46) (Peyrot 2013b: 282)
a2+Wer [ist] sie wohl? Ist sie des Mechanikers Schwester [oder] Tochter oder Frau oder Dienerin? (Schmidt 1974: 109)
a3+(But) a guest would not have been charged to pay honour to [another] guest. (cf 9; 258) (Peyrot 2013b: 273)
a5+Darauf [denkt] der Maler: "Durch (meine) Leidenschaft soll (sie nicht geschädigt(?)) sein", er gähnt [und] macht Miene, die Hand zu strecken. (Schmidt 1974: 92)
b1+What if perhaps she had seated herself right before [lit. manifestly] me to honour me? As long as I don't speak to [lit. honour] her with heart-felt affection [lit. honour], my dream [that] this gentle one serves me, does not get spoilt yet. (Peyrot 2013b: 651)
b1+Wenn sie offenbar etwa nur, [um] mich zu verehren, vor mir sitzen (sollte), [so] stört diese Zarte, [mich] bedienend, [von sich aus] auch nicht meinen Traum, solange ich zu dieser nicht die Sprache des Herzens spreche. (Schmidt 1974: 485, 490)
b3+Wiederum denkt er: "Im Hinblick auf große Gefahr ist ja hier Klugen nicht erlaubt, zu zehnerlei Frauen Liebe zu äußern ..." (Schmidt 1974: 179-80)

Commentary

Remarks

Transcription and references have been transferred from the "Text and Reference Database of the Tocharian A Language" (Gerd Carling Lund University) (funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and SCAS).
Transcription and translation are based on Carling et al. 2009.

Philological commentary

The translation is largely based on Sieg 1944: 9-10, and Carling et al. 2009.
n1The stretching out of the painter's hand is most likely a gesture of dismissal; cf. Sieg 1944: 9, fn. 8.
n2the tune is 4x14 syllables, rhythm 7/7.
