Rede, Mädchen, allzu liebes

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Russian (Русский)

Rede, Mädchen, allzu liebes,
das mir in die Brust, die kühle,
hat geschleudert mit dem Blicke
diese wilden Glutgefühle!

Willst du nicht dein Herz erweichen,
willst du, eine Überfromme,
rasten ohne traute Wonne,
oder willst du, daß ich komme?

Rasten ohne traute Wonne,
nicht so bitter will ich büßen.
Komme nur, du schwarzes Auge.
Komme, wenn die Sterne grüßen.

Speak, maiden, whom I love all too much

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Speak, maiden, whom I love all too much,
 who hurled into my once aloof heart,
 with only one glance,
 these wild, ardent feelings!
 
 Will you not soften your heart?
 Do you wish to be chaste
 and remain without sweet bliss,
 or do you want me to come to you?
 
 To remain without sweet bliss -
 I would never make such a bitter penance.
 So come, dark-eyes,
 come when the stars greet you.
