Es schauen die Blumen alle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es schauen die Blumen alle
Zur leuchtenden Sonne hinauf;
Es nehmen die Ströme alle
Zum leuchtenden Meere den Lauf.

Es flattern die Lieder alle
Zu meinem leuchtenden Lieb -
Nehmt mit meine Tränen und Seufzer,
Ihr Lieder, wehmütig und trüb!


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE RUS

Посвящение

Language: Russian (Русский) after the German (Deutsch)

Цветы головки поднимают
к сиянью солнечных лучей,
и реки бег свой направляют 
к простору синему морей.

А песни все на крыльях грёзы
я шлю к возлюбленной моей...
Мои стенания и слёзы
снесите, песни, тоже ей.
