Kurze Fahrt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Posthorn, wie so keck und fröhlich
Brachst du einst den Morgen an,
Vor mir lag's so frühlingsselig,
Daß ich still auf Lieder sann.

Dunkel rauscht es schon im Walde,
Wie so abendkühl wird's hier,
Schwager, stoß ins Horn - wie balde
Sind auch wir im Nachtquartier!

Short journey

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Posthorn, how jauntily and merrily
 you once brought on the morning;
 it lay before me with such spring bliss
 that I thought silent songs. 
 
 The forest is already murmuring darkly,
 and how evening-cool it is becoming here;
 coachman, blow your horn - how soon
 we too will find our night lodgings!
