Warum mußt du welken, schöne Rose?

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)

Warum mußt du welken, schöne Rose?
Haben dich ertränkt die Wasserfluten?
Haben dich versengt der Sonne Gluten?
Oder waren es des Jünglings Augen,
Die voll heisser Sehnsucht auf dir ruhten?
Mich ertränkten nicht die Wasserfluten,
Mich versengten nicht der Sonne Gluten!
Ach, es waren seine sanften Augen,
Die voll Lieb' und Sehnsucht auf mir ruhten,
Wenn er auf nach meinem Fenster schaute.
