Lenore

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es stehn die Stern am Himmel, 
es scheint der Mond so hell, 
die Toten reiten schnell. 
Der Hahn beginnt zu krähen 
und singet an den Tag, 
nicht lang mehr bleiben mag. 
Auf einer grünen Haide, 
da ist mein Haus gebaut 
für mich und meine Braut.

Lenore

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 A star stands in the heavens,
 the moon seems so bright,
 the dead ride swiftly.
 The cock begins to crow
 and sings in the day,
 not long more may remain.
 On a green heath,
 there, my house is built
 for me and my bride.
