Meine Töne still und heiter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meine Töne still und heiter,
  Zu der Liebsten steigt hinan!
  O daß ich auf eurer Leiter
  Zu ihr auf nicht steigen kann.

Leget, o ihr süßen Töne,
  An die Brust ihr meinen Schmerz,
  Weil nicht will die strenge Schöne,
  Daß ich ihr mich leg ans Herz.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA

Youmy notes, quiet and serene

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

[You] my notes, quiet and serene,
  Ascend to my beloved!
  Oh, that I upon your ladder
  Could not also ascend to her!

Place, oh you sweet notes,
  My pain upon her breast,
  Since the stern beautiful one does not wish
  That I myself rest upon her heart.
