Wie rein der Herbstwind weht

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Chinese (中文)

Wie rein der Herbstwind weht,
wie hell der Herbstmond geht,
und welke Blätter wirbeln auf und nieder,
die Winterkrähe kehrt zum Turme wieder. 

Ich denk' an dich und denk',
ob ich dich jemals wieder seh;
ach, dieser Tag und diese Nacht wie voll,
wie voll von Sehnsuchtsweh!
