Regen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the French (Français)

Regen [sinkt auf die]1 Stadt,
und mein [Herz]2 steht in Tränen.
Ich weiß nicht, was es hat:
mein Herz ist voll Sehnen.

[Das]3 ruhige Regenklopfen
auf den Dächern und Gassen.
Leise trommeln die Tropfen:
Verlassen, verlassen!

Warum nur muss ich weinen?
Mein Herz ist am Verscheiden.
Warum? Ich weiss ja keinen
Grund, solchen Gram zu leiden!

O das ist bitt're Pein:
so sonder Lieb und Groll
unsäglich traurig sein,
das Herz von Tränen voll.

Rain

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Rain [sinks down onto]1 the city,
and my heart stands tear-filled.
I know not what is bothering it:
my heart is full of longing.

[The]2 quiet knocking of the rain
on the roofs and streets-
Softly pound the drops:
Forsaken, forsaken!

Why must I weep?
My heart is about to die.
Why? I know of no
Reason for suffering such pain!

Oh, that is bitter pain:
So [entirely] without love and resentment
to be unfathomably sad,
the heart full of tears.
