Im Walde wandl' ich und weine

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Walde wandl' ich und weine,
die Drossel sitzt in der Höh;
sie springt und singt gar feine:
Warum ist dir so weh?

"Die Schwalben, deine Schwestern,
die könnens dir sagen, mein Kind;
sie wohnten in klugen Nestern,
wo Liebchens Fenster sind."

I wander through the wood and weep

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I wander through the wood and weep,
The thrush sits on the tree
And gladly chirps and sweetly sings,
What ails it now with thee.
 
The swallows who thy sisters are,
Can answer thee right well
For in their nests, ah happy they,
By my love’s house they dwell.
