By Celia's arbour all the night

Language: English

By Celia's arbour all the night
    Hang, humid wreath, the lover's vow;
And haply, at the morning light,
    My love shall twine thee round her brow.

Then, if upon her bosom bright
    Some drops of dew shall fall from thee,
Tell her, they are not drops of night,
    But tears of sorrow shed by me!

Der Blumenkranz

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

An Celia's Baum in stiller Nacht
Hängt Blumen, treuer Liebe Pfand!
Vielleicht, wenn neu der Morgen lacht,
Flicht euch zum Kranz der Liebsten Hand.

Und fällt auf ihres Busens Pracht
Ein Tröpfchen Tau aus eurem Schoß,
Dann sagt, es sei kein Tau der Nacht,
Nur Tränen, die ihr Freund vergoß.
