Available translations, adaptations or excerpts, and transliterations (if applicable):


Die Welt ist so schön und der Himmel so blau,
Und die Lüfte die wehen so lind und so lau,
Und die Blumen winken auf blühender Au,
Und funkeln und glitzern im Morgentau,
Und die Menschen jubeln, wohin ich schau, --
Und doch möcht ich im Grabe liegen,
Und mich an mein totes Liebchen schmiegen.


Confirmed with Heinrich Heine, Buch der Lieder, Hoffmann und Campe, Hamburg, 1827, page 135.
