Ihr Blümlein alle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab,
Euch soll man legen
Mit mir in's Grab.

Wie seht ihr alle
Mich an so weh,
Als ob ihr wüßtet,
Wie mir gescheh'?

Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wie welk, wie blaß?
Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wovon so naß?

Ach, Thränen machen
Nicht maiengrün,
Machen todte Liebe
Nicht wieder blühn.

Und Lenz wird kommen,
Und Winter wird gehn,
Und Blümlein werden
Im Grase stehn,

Und Blümlein liegen
In meinem Grab,
Die Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab.

Und wenn sie wandelt
Am Hügel vorbei,
Und denkt im Herzen:
Der meint' es treu!

Dann Blümlein alle,
Heraus, heraus!
Der Mai ist kommen,
Der Winter ist aus.

Withered flowers

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

You flowers all that to me she gave,
You shall be laid with me in my grave.



How gloomy all of you seem to be,
As though you'd known what would happen to me.



You flowers faded and pale you grow,
You flowers all what has drenched you so?



Ah, tears will not bring the Maytime's green,
Nor will they again make a dead love keen.



And spring will come here, and winter will pass,
And flowers will blossom in the grass.



And flowers will be laid in my grave,
The flowers all that to me she gave.



And when she walks past the mound laid with you,
And thinks in heart that his feelings were true!



Then all you flowers come out, come out,
See winter's over and Maytime will sprout!
