Weißt du noch, wie ich am Felsen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weißt du noch, wie ich am [Felsen]1
Bei den Veilchen dich belauschte?
Weißt du noch den Fliederstrauch,
Wo der Strom vorüber rauschte?
Weißt du noch den Bergespfad,
Wo ich um den Strauß dich bat,
  Weißt du noch?

Ach, es war ein süßes Bild,
Als du da errötend standest
Und zur Erde all die Blumen
Fielen, die zum Strauß du [wandest]2!
Deine liebe kleine Hand
Spielte mit dem blauen Band,
  Weißt du noch?

Und es sahen Fels und Strom
Dein Erröten und dein Beben,
Sahen auch den ersten Kuß,
Halb genommen, halb gegeben!
Und des Himmels goldner Strahl
Ueberflog Gebirg und Thal;
  Weißt du noch?

Do you still remember, how at the rock

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Do you still remember, how at the rock
By the violets I eavesdropped on you?
Do you still remember the lilac bush
Where the river rushed past?
Do you still remember the mountain path
Where I asked you for your bouquet,
  Do you still remember?

Ah, it was a sweet image
When you stood there blushing
And all the flowers fell to earth,
[The flowers] that you were [twining]1 into a bouquet!
Your dear little hand
Played with the blue ribbon,
  Do you still remember?

And the rocks and river saw
Your blushing and your trembling,
Saw, too, the first kiss,
Half taken, half given!
And the golden beam from heaven
Skimmed over mountain and valley;
  Do you still remember?
