Am ersten Tage des Maien

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Am ersten Tage des Maien 
Der Blumen ging ich mich freuen; 
Ein Vöglein kam den Busch entlang, 
Von Liebe das Vöglein sang.

O Vöglein, du kommst von Firenze, 
So sag' mir von Lieb' in dem Lenze: 
"Die Liebe beginnt mit Schallen und Tönen, 
"Die Liebe, sie endet in Jammer und Tränen."
