Patrician Bride of Nürnberg and Virgin Accompanyig Her
"In Nuremberg / The noble brides / Go in a brown winged dress. / When there is dance in the city hall / Or at night when there is dance at home / They wear red winged skirts / And on the head a pearl crown."
"The virgins who conduct the bride / do themselves up like this. / With curly hair to the evening dance / And bare throat / On the head a wreath."
