An die Geliebte

Language: German (Deutsch)

O daß ich dir vom stillen Auge
In seinem liebevollen Schein,
Die Thräne von der Wange sauge,
Eh' sie die Erde trinket ein.

Wohl hält sie zögernd auf der Wange,
Und will sich heiß der Treue weihn;
Nun ich sie so im Kuß empfange,
Nun sind auch deine Schmerzen mein.

To the beloved

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 O, if only from your quiet eye
 in its love-filled gleam
 I might drink the tears from your cheek,
 before the earth drinks them in!

 Well do they hesitate on your cheeks,
 as if to sanctify warmly its fidelity.
 Now I receive it in this kiss;
 now are your pains mine - yes mine!
