Meine Liebe ist grün wie der...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meine Liebe ist grün wie der Fliederbusch,
und mein Lieb ist schön wie die Sonne,
die glänzt wohl herab auf den Fliederbusch
und füllt ihn mit Duft und mit Wonne.

Meine Seele hat Schwingen der Nachtigall,
und wiegt sich in blühendem Flieder,
und jauchzet und singet vom Duft berauscht
viel liebestrunkene Lieder.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE SPA

Songs of youth I

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

My love is as green as the lilac bush,
And my love is as fair as the sun, 
which gleams down on the lilacbush
and fills it with fragrance and bliss.

My soul has the wings of a nightingale
and rocks itself in blooming lilac,
and, intoxicated by the fragrance, cheers and sings
a good many love-drunk songs.
