Rain has fallen all the day

Language: English

Rain has fallen all the day.
O come among the laden trees:
The leaves lie thick upon the way
Of [mem'ries.]1

Staying a little by the way
Of [mem'ries]1 shall we depart.
Come, my beloved, where I may
Speak to your heart.

Es hat geregnet

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Es hat den ganzen Tag geregnet.
O komm doch unter die beladenen Bäume,
die Blätter liegen dicht auf dem Pfad
der Erinnerungen.
Verweilen wir ein wenig auf dem Pfad
der Erinnerungen, dann gehen wir fort.
Komm, Geliebte, komm dorthin, wo ich
zu deinem Herzen sprechen kann.
