Nachtigall

Language: German (Deutsch)

O Nachtigall,
Dein süßer Schall
Dringt mir durch Mark und Bein.
Nein, trauter Vogel, nein!
Was in mir schafft so süße Pein,
Das ist nicht dein, --
Das ist von andern himmelschönen,
Nun längst für mich verklungenen Tönen
In deinem Lied ein leiser Widerhall.


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE ITA
