Meine Liebe ist grün wie der...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meine Liebe ist grün wie der Fliederbusch,
und mein Lieb ist schön wie die Sonne,
die glänzt wohl herab auf den Fliederbusch
und füllt ihn mit Duft und mit Wonne.

Meine Seele hat Schwingen der Nachtigall,
und wiegt sich in blühendem Flieder,
und jauchzet und singet vom Duft berauscht
viel liebestrunkene Lieder.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE SPA

Chants de jeunesse I

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Mon amour est aussi vert que le buisson de lilas,
Et mon amour est aussi beau que le soleil,
Qui brille sur la buisson de lilas
Et le remplit de parfum et de joie.

Mon âme a les ailes du rossignol
Et se balance dans le lilas en fleurs,
Et enivrée par le parfum se réjouit et chante
Maints des chants ivres d'amour.
