In dem Schatten meiner Locken

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

In dem Schatten meiner Locken
Schlief mir mein Geliebter ein.
Weck' ich ihn nun auf? -- Ach nein!

Sorglich strählt' ich meine krausen
Locken täglich in der Frühe,
Doch umsonst ist meine Mühe,
Weil die Winde sie zerzausen.
Lockenschatten, Windessausen
Schläferten den Liebsten ein.
Weck' ich ihn nun auf? -- Ach nein!

Hören muß ich, wie ihn gräme,
Daß er schmachtet schon so lange,
Daß ihm Leben [geb' und nehme]1
Diese meine braune Wange,
Und er nennt mich seine Schlange,
Und doch schlief er bei mir ein.
Weck' ich ihn nun auf? -- Ach nein!

In de schaduw van mijn lokken

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

In de schaduw van mijn lokken
Nam de slaap mijn minnaar mee.
Moet hij nu gewekt? – Ach, nee!
Netjes kamd' ik, alle dagen,
't Krulhaar, vroeg al in de morgen,
Maar vergeefs is al mijn zorgen,
Daar de winden het belagen.
Lokkenschaduw, rukwindvlagen
Maakten loom mijn bien-aimé.
Moet hij nu gewekt? – Ach, nee!
Horen moet ik van zijn lijden,
Van zijn smachten en verlangen,
Hoe hem doden en bevrijden
Mijn twee mooie bruine wangen,
En hij zegt dat ik zijn slang ben,
Maar hij slaapt bij mij tevree.
Moet hij nu gewekt? – Ach, nee!
