37 SUPPLICA TION 5 HYMN OF THE RED ARMY SOLDIER* 1 Because beneath a leaden sun This land of ours is gnawed away It spat us out on freezing highways It spat us out on byways dark. 2 Though washed in snow in time of spring The army is red summer's child. The fall brought snow. When it was winter The army's heart froze in the wind. 3 In those years Freedom was a word That often fell from lips of ice And some had tigers' fangs that followed After the red, inhuman flag. 4 When in the com the red moon swam Our fellows tied their horses up And in the fields talked of the future, Then fell asleep, tired by the march.

And she often sweated With anxious fear, not seldom at the altar. ifNGE 3 Doch hab' den Zustand sie geheim gehalten Bis die Geburt sie nachher iiberfiel. Es sei gegangen, da wohl niemand glaubte DaB sie, sehr reizlos, in Versuchung fiel.
