Ich wand ein Sträußchen morgens früh

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich wand ein [Sträußchen morgens]1 früh,
  Das ich der Liebsten schickte;
Nicht ließ ich sagen ihr, von wem,
  Und wer die Blumen pflückte.

Doch als ich abends kam zum Tanz
  Und tat verstohlen und sachte,
Da trug sie die Nelken am Busenlatz
  Und schaute mich an und lachte.

Carnations

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Early in the morning I wound a little garland
 that I sent to my beloved;
 I did not let them tell her from whom,
 or who had picked the flowers.
 
 But when in the evening I came to dance
 and acted furtive and quiet,
 she came in with the carnations on her bosom,
 looked at me and laughed.
