Mirza‑Schaffy, liebliche Biene

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Mirza-Schaffy, liebliche Biene,
Lange bist du umhergeflogen,
Hast von Rosen und Jasmine
Nektar und süße Düfte gesogen;
Höre jetzt auf zu wandern
Von einer Blume zur andern --
Kehr' mit dem Gefieder
Deiner duftigen Lieder,
Kehr' mit all deinem Honigseim
Heim, zur Geliebten heim!
