The theme of this familiar poem is a young man's determination and chagrin as he tries to win the hand of a maiden betrothed by her parents to another man during her childhood. The rhythm of first stanza may be played on a |ikutapi"|r, a violin-like instrument, or a Jew's harp, into which the words are spoken, understood and enjoyed by anyone within earshot. Used only recreationally today, the poem was formerly used during engagement negotiations.
