translation: why stand you there shaking, skinny little rowan? bowing your head and quaking to the veryground. out across the road, over the wide, wide river, likewise solitary, an oak tree stands there lonely. how can that poor rowan get over to the oak tree? then she would stop her shaking, bowing her head and quaking. with her skinny branches she would embrace him. and with all her folliage, day and night she'd whisper. but there is no way for the rowan to get to the oak tree. knowing her fate is such that for a century she'll be lonely. that poor orphan knowing for a century she'll be lonely..........
it's a very old song.
