Floret silva nobilis

Language: Multiple Languages

Floret silva nobilis
floribus et foliis.
Ubi est antiquus
meus amicus? Ah !
Hinc equitavit!
Eia, quis me amabit? Ah !

Floret silva undique,
nach mime gesellen ist mir we.
Gruonet der walt allenthalben,
wa ist min geselle alse lange?
Ah! der ist geriten hinnen,
owi, wer sol mich minnen? Ah!

La nobile foresta si copre (Coro e piccolo coro)

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Multiple Languages

La nobile foresta si copre
di fiori e di germogli.
Dove si trova l'amico
che avevo un tempo? Ah!
Da qui è partito a cavallo,
Ahimè, chi mi amerà ora? Ah!

Dappertutto rinverdisce il bosco
sono in pena per l'amico mio.
Si riempie di verde ogni luogo,
dove indugia tanto il mio amico? Ah!
E' partito da qui a cavallo,
Ahimè, chi mi amerà ora? Ah!
