Am Bach viel kleine Blumen stehn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Bach viel kleine Blumen stehn,
Aus hellen blauen Augen sehn;
Der Bach, der ist des Müllers Freund,
Und hellblau Liebchens Auge scheint,
Drum sind es meine Blumen.

Dicht unter ihrem Fensterlein,
[Da pflanz' ich meine Blumen ein]1,
Da ruft ihr zu, wenn alles schweigt,
Wenn sich ihr Haupt zum Schlummer neigt,
Ihr wißt ja, was ich meine.

Und wenn sie tät die Äuglein zu
Und schläft in süßer, süßer Ruh,
Dann lispelt als ein Traumgesicht
Ihr zu: Vergiß, vergiß mein nicht!
Das ist es, was ich meine.

Und schließt sie früh die Laden auf,
Dann schaut mit Liebesblick hinauf:
Der Tau in euren Äugelein,
Das sollen meine Tränen sein,
Die will ich auf euch weinen.

The miller's flowers

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 By the brook, many small flowers stand;
 Out of bright blue eyes they look;
 The brook - it is the miller's friend, -
 And light blue shine my darling's eyes;
 therefor, these are my flowers.

 Right under her little window,
 There will I plant these flowers,
 There will you call to her when everything is quiet,
 When her head leans to slumber,
 You know what I intend you to say!

 And when she closes her little eyes,
 And sleeps in sweet sweet rest,
 Then whisper, like a dreamy vision:
 Forget, forget me not!
 That is what I mean.

 And early in the morning, when she opens the shutters up,
 then look up with a loving gaze:
 The dew in your little eyes
 shall be my tears,
 which I will shed upon you.
