Am Bach viel kleine Blumen stehn

Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FIN FRE GRE ITA KOR POR
Am Bach viel kleine Blumen stehn,
Aus hellen blauen Augen sehn;
Der Bach der ist des Müllers Freund,
Und hellblau Liebchens Auge scheint,
Drum sind es meine Blumen.

Dicht unter ihrem Fensterlein
Da [pflanz' ich meine]1 Blumen ein,
Da ruft ihr zu, wenn Alles schweigt,
Wenn sich ihr Haupt zum Schlummer neigt,
Ihr wißt ja, was ich meine.

Und wenn sie thät die Äuglein zu,
Und schläft in süßer, süßer Ruh',
Dann lispelt als ein Traumgesicht
Ihr zu: Vergiß, vergiß mein nicht!
Das ist es, was ich meine.

Und schließt sie früh die Laden auf,
Dann schaut mit Liebesblick hinauf:
Der Thau in euren Äugelein,
Das sollen meine Thränen sein,
Die will ich auf euch weinen.

Muitas flores ficam junto ao rio
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Muitas flores ficam junto ao rio,
Como se fossem claros olhos azuis;
O rio é amigo do moleiro,
E os olhos da minha amada são azuis claros,
Portanto, elas só podem ser minhas flores.

Bem embaixo da janela dela
Eu vou plantar vocês, flores, 
pra que vocês a chamem quando tudo dormir, 
quando ela enconstar a cabeça pra adormecer.
Vocês sabem, com certeza, o que eu quero dizer.

E quando ela fechar seus olhinhos
E dormir em doce, doce repouso,
Então, sussurrem a ela como em uma visão:
Não se esqueça, não se esqueça de mim!
É isso o que eu quero dizer.

E, de manhã cedo, quando ela abrir as persianas, 
Então, olhem para cima com olhar amoroso. 
O orvalho nos pequenos olhos de vocês 
Será minhas lágrimas, 
Que vou chorar sobre vocês.
