Es schauen die Blumen alle

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es schauen die Blumen alle
Zur leuchtenden Sonne hinauf;
Es nehmen die Ströme alle
Zum leuchtenden Meere den Lauf.

Es flattern die Lieder alle
Zu meinem leuchtenden Lieb -
Nehmt mit meine Tränen und Seufzer,
Ihr Lieder, wehmütig und trüb!


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE RUS

All the flowers gaze

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

All the flowers gaze
up to the brilliant sun;
All the streams run
to the gleaming sea.

All songs flutter
to my bright love -
Take along with you my tears and sighs,
You songs so mournful and dreary!
