Du brachst sie nun die kalte Rinde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du brachst sie nun die kalte Rinde,
Und rieselst froh und frei dahin;
Die [Lüfte]1 wehen wieder linde,
Und Moos und Gras wird [frisch]2 und grün.

[Doch ich -]3 mit traurigem Gemüthe
Tret' ich wie sonst zu deiner Fluth,
Der Erde allgemeine Blüthe
Kommt meinem Herzen nicht zu gut.

Hier treiben immer gleiche Winde,
Kein Hoffen kommt in meinen Sinn -
Als daß ich hier ein Blümchen finde,
Blau, wie sie der Erinnrung blühn.

By the brook in springtime

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

You have now broken your cold crust
and you ripple merrily and freely forth.
The breezes blow gently again,
and moss and grass grow new and green.

Alone and in a mournful mood
I walk by your waters as of old.
The blossoming of the earth 
does my soul no good.

Here the same winds are ever driving me,
and no hope enters my mind,
even when I find a little flower here:
blue, like the flowers blooming in my memories.
