Ihr Blümlein alle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab,
Euch soll man legen
Mit mir ins Grab.

Wie seht ihr alle
Mich an so weh,
Als ob ihr wüßtet,
Wie mir gescheh?

Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wie welk, wie blaß?
Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wovon so naß?

Ach, Tränen machen
Nicht maiengrün,
Machen tote Liebe
Nicht wieder blühn.

Und Lenz wird kommen,
Und Winter wird gehn,
Und Blümlein werden
Im Grase stehn.

Und Blümlein liegen
In meinem Grab,
Die Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab.

Und wenn sie wandelt
Am Hügel vorbei
Und denkt im Herzen:
Der meint' es treu!

Dann, Blümlein alle,
Heraus, heraus!
Der Mai ist kommen,
Der Winter ist aus.

Ξεραμένα λουλούδια

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά) after the German (Deutsch)

Όλα εσείς λουλουδάκια,
Που εκείνη μου έδωσε, 
Πρέπει να σας βάλουν
Μαζί μου στον τάφο.

Τι κοιτάζετε όλα
Εμένα τόσο θλιμμένα, 
Σαν να γνωρίζετε
Τι μου έχει συμβεί;

Όλα εσείς λουλουδάκια, 
Τόσο μαραμένα, τόσο χλωμά;
Όλα εσείς λουλουδάκια, 
Από πού τόσα δάκρυα;

Αχ, τα δάκρυα δεν κάνουν
Το πράσινο του Μάη,
Δεν κάνουν τη νεκρή αγάπη
Να ανθίσει ξανά.

Και η άνοιξη θα έρθει,
Και ο χειμώνας θα φύγει,
Και λουλουδάκια
Θα βγουν στη χλόη.

Και λουλουδάκια θα μπουν
Στον τάφο μου,
Όλα τα λουλουδάκια,  
Που εκείνη μου έδωσε.

Και όταν εκείνη διαβαίνει
Από το λόφο
Και σκέφτεται μέσα στην καρδιά της:
Αυτός το εννοούσε ειλικρινά!

Τότε, όλα εσείς λουλουδάκια,
Βγείτε έξω, έξω!
Ο Μάιος έφθασε,
Ο χειμώνας τέλειωσε.
