Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe,
ein gar zu gefährlicher Bronnen;
da fiel ich hinein, ich Armer,
kann weder hören noch sehn,
nur denken an meine Wonnen,
nur stöhnen in meinen Wehn.

Een donkere schacht is de liefde

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Een donkere schacht is de liefde,
een veel te gevaarlijke bron;
ik viel erin, ik arme,
ik kan niet horen of zien,
alleen maar denken aan mijn vreugden,
alleen maar kreunen in mijn pijnen.
