Tegernsee
Walther von der Vogelweide (c. 1170–c. 1230)
 
Translated by A. E. Kroeger

      How great its hospitality.
Then turned I more than one mile from the highway.
      —Truly I am a curious man,
      That I myself so little plan,        5
And far too much let other people dictate my way.
—I ’ll scold them not; God bless and make us better!
      They gave me water.
      Thus, foolish plotter,
I turned from the Monk’s table simply wetter.        10
