      Pustiśe ju nadvor tudja dica:
      Nije sriche da sam tute bila!
      Zlatnu ticu ja bi uhvatila.
      My golden bird has fled away; –
      before I could bring her something to eat,
      other people’s children let her out:
      it was no good fortune that I was here!
      I’d like to catch the golden bird.
    • 1845, anonymous, recorded by Vuk Karadžić, “Propast carstva srpskoga” [“The Ruin of the Tsardom of Serbia”] in Narodne srpske pjesme:
      Полетио соко тица сива
      од светиње од Јерусалима,
      и он носи тицу ластавицу.
      То не био соко тица сива,
      веће био светитељ Илија;
      он не носи тице ластавице,
      веће књигу од Богородице []
      A grey falcon-bird took flight
      from the holy place, from Jerusalem,
      and he carried a small swallow-bird.
      That was no grey falcon-bird,
      but rather it was Saint Elijah;
      it’s not a small swallow-bird he carried,
      but a letter from the Mother of God []
