Ich wandle unter Blumen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich wandle unter Blumen
Und blühe selber mit,
Ich wandle wie im Traume
Und schwanke bei jedem Schritt.
 
O halt mich fest, Geliebte!
Vor Liebestrunkenheit
Fall' ich dir sonst zu Füßen
Und der Garten ist voller Leut!


Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE FRE ROM

I wander among the flowers

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 I wander among the flowers
 and blossom myself along with them;
 I wander as if in a dream
 and sway with every step.
 
 Oh hold me tightly, my beloved!
 Or, drunk with love,
 I will collapse at your feet;
 and the garden is full of people!
