Dein Herzlein mild

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein Herzlein mild,
Du liebes Bild,
Das ist noch nicht [erglommen]1,
Und drinnen ruht
Verträumte Glut,
Wird bald zu Tage kommen.

Es hat die Nacht
Einen Thau gebracht
Den [Knospen]2 all im Walde,
Und Morgens drauf
Da blüht's zuhauf
Und duftet durch die Halde.

Die Liebe sacht
Hat über Nacht
Dir Thau ins Herz gegossen,
Und Morgens dann,
Man sieht dir's an,
Das Knösplein ist erschlossen.

Your tender heart

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Your tender heart,
you lovely image,
does not yet glow
there lies within
a dreamy glow,
'twill soon come alive.

The night has 
brought on a dew
to all the blossoms in the wood,
and in the morning
to come all is blooming aplenty
and fragrance drifts across the slope.

The tender love
has overnight
poured dew into your heart,
and then in the morning,
it's written, on your face,
the blossom has been brought to bloom.
