Mein!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bächlein, laß dein Rauschen sein!
Räder, stellt eu'r Brausen ein!
All ihr muntern Waldvögelein,
Groß und klein,
Endet eure Melodein!
Durch den Hain
Aus und ein
Schalle heut' ein Reim allein:
Die geliebte Müllerin ist mein!
Mein!
Frühling, sind das alle deine Blümelein?
Sonne, hast du keinen hellern Schein?
Ach, so muß ich ganz allein,
Mit dem seligen Worte mein,
Unverstanden in der weiten Schöpfung sein!

Mine!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Little brook, let your gushing be!
 Wheels, cease your roaring!
 All you merry woodbirds,
 Large and small,
 End your melodies!
 Through the grove,
 Out and in,
 Let only one song be heard today:
 The beloved millermaid is mine!
 Mine!
 Spring, are all of those your flowers?
 Sun, have you no brighter shine?
 Ah, so I must be all alone
 With my blissful word,
 incomprehensible to all of Creation!
