Will ruhen unter den Bäumen hier

Language: German (Deutsch)

Will ruhen unter den Bäumen hier,
Die Vögelein hör' ich so gerne.
Wie singet ihr so zum Herzen mir!
Von unsrer Liebe was wisset ihr
In dieser weiten Ferne?

Will ruhen hier an des Baches Rand,
Wo duftige Blümlein sprießen.
Wer hat euch Blümlein, [hieher]1 gesandt?
Seid ihr ein herzliches Liebespfand
Aus der Ferne von meiner Süßen?

Far away

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I will rest under the trees here,
I enjoy listening to the little birds so much;
How can your singing affect my heart so!
What do you know of our love,
In this far-off place?

I will rest here on the edge of the brook,
Where fragrant little flowers sprout.
Who has sent you little blossoms here?
Are you a heartfelt pledge of love
From my far-off sweetheart?
