Komm bald

Language: German (Deutsch)

Warum denn warten von Tag zu Tag?
Es blüht im Garten, was blühen mag.
Wer kommt und zählt es, was blüht so schön?
An Augen fehlt es, es anzuseh'n.

Die meinen wandern vom Strauch zum Baum;
mir scheint, auch andern wär's wie ein Traum.
Und von den Lieben, die mir getreu
und mir geblieben, wär'st du dabei!

Come soon

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Why, then, wait from day to day?
The garden blooms when it wants to bloom.
Who comes to count everything that blooms so fair?
No pair of eyes would be able to see everything.

My own eyes wander from bush to tree;
it seems to me that others would think it a dream.
And of those lovers, who are true to me
and love me, I wish you were among them!
