Im Frühling

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr frühlingstrunknen Blumen,
Ihr Bäume, monddurchblinket!
Ihr könnt nichts sagen und seid stumm,
Wie süß ihr schwelgt und trinket!

Ich trink und schwelge mit euch
Und sing's in heller Frühlingslust.
O, wie mir Aug und Wange glüht!
Sie hebt und sehnt sich meiner Brust!

Du sehnsuchtleuchtend Mondlicht,
Ihr friedlich hellen Sterne
Blickt zu den Blumen still herab.
Euch bleibt der Frühling ferne.

Mir blüht und glüht die Rose
Und mir die frische Frühlingspracht!
All meine Träume sind erfüllt,
Nun ist dem Herzen Ruh gebracht.

In spring

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

You flowers, intoxicated with spring,
You trees, through which the moon gleams!
You can say nothing, and remain mute,
How sweet is your feasting and drinking!

I drink and feast with you
And sing with the bright joy of spring.
O, how my eyes and my cheeks glow!
My breast heaves and yearns.

Moonlight, glowing with longing,
You peaceful, bright stars
Twinkle down silently on the flowers.
For you, the spring remains distant.

For me the rose blooms and glows,
And, for me, the fresh splendor of spring!
All of my dreams are fulfilled,
Now my heart has achieved tranquility.
