So regnet es sich langsam ein

Language: German (Deutsch)

So regnet es sich langsam ein
und immer kürzer wird der Tag
und immer seltener der Sonnenschein.

Ich sah am Waldrand gestern ein paar Rosen stehn...
gib mir die Hand und komm...
wir wollen sie [uns]1 pflücken gehn...

Es werden wohl die letzten sein!

Thus slowly starts the season's rain

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Thus slowly starts the season's rain,
and ever shorter grows the day
and ever rarer does the sun remain.

Last night I saw some roses, red near forest's gray...
give me your hand and come...
we'll pick them on our way...

they'll be the last ones we obtain!
