Die Lotosblume ängstigt

Set by Oscar Strasnoy (b. 1970), "Die Lotosblume ängstigt" [duet for soprano and tenor with piano], from Heine, no. 9. [ sung text not verified ]

Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

Die Lotosblume ängstigt
Sich vor der Sonne Pracht
Und mit gesenktem Haupte
Erwartet sie träumend die Nacht.

Der Mond, [der]1 ist ihr Buhle
Er weckt sie mit seinem Licht,
Und ihm entschleiert sie freundlich
Ihr [frommes]2 Blumengesicht,

Sie blüht und glüht und leuchtet
Und starret stumm in die Höh';
Sie duftet und weinet und zittert
Vor Liebe und Liebesweh.

Ich hab' im [Traum]1 geweinet,
Mir träumte, du lägest im Grab.
Ich wachte auf, und die Träne 
Floß noch von der Wange herab.

Ich hab' im Traum geweinet,
Mir träumt', du verließest mich.
Ich wachte auf, und ich weinte
Noch lange bitterlich.

Ich hab' im Traum geweinet,
Mir träumte, du [wär'st mir noch]2 gut.
Ich wachte auf, und noch immer
Strömt meine Tränenflut.

1 Franz: "Traume", passim.
2 Loewe: "bliebest mir"


Submitted by René Slot and Pierre Mathé

Allnächtlich im Traume seh' ich dich
Und sehe dich freundlich grüßen,
Und laut aufweinend stürz' ich mich
Zu deinen süßen Füßen.

Du [siehst]1 mich an wehmütiglich
Und schüttelst das blonde Köpfchen;
Aus deinen Augen schleichen sich  
Die Perlentränentröpfchen.

Du [sagst]2 mir heimlich ein leises Wort
Und gibst mir den Strauß von Zypressen.
Ich wache auf, und der Strauß ist fort,
[Und das]3 Wort hab' ich vergessen.
