Im Garten am Seegestade

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Garten am Seegestade
Uralte Bäume stehn,
In ihren hohen Kronen
Sind kaum die Vögel zu sehn.

Die Bäume mit hohen Kronen,
Die rauschen Tag und Nacht,
Die Wellen schlagen zum Strande,
Die Vöglein singen sacht.

Das gibt ein Musizieren
So süß, so traurig bang,
Als wie verlorner Liebe
Und ewiger Sehnsucht Sang.

In the garden at the seashore

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In the garden at the seashore
 Stand primeval trees;
 In their high tops
 Are the birds hardly to be seen.

 The trees with high tops
 Rustle day and night;
 The waves beat against the shore;
 The birds sing softly.

This makes a music
 So sweet, so sadly fearful,
 It is like a song of lost Love 
 And endless yearning.
