Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen
Geh' ich im Garten herum.
Es flüstern und sprechen die Blumen,
[Ich aber, ich wandle stumm.]1

Es flüstern und sprechen die Blumen,
Und [schaun]2 mitleidig mich an:
Sei [unserer]3 Schwester nicht böse,
Du trauriger blasser Mann.

בבוקר קיץ מאיר אני סובב לי בגן. הפרחים לוחשים ומדברים, אבל אני משוטט דומם. הפרחים לוחשים ומדברים ומביטים בי בחמלה: אל תכעס על אחותנו, אדם עצוב וחיוור שכמוך!
