Mond verhüllt sein Angesicht
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Hungarian (Magyar) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Mond verhüllt sein Angesicht,
süßes Lieb, ich zürne dir nicht.
Wollt ich zürnend dich betrüben, sprich
wie könnt ich dich dann lieben?

Heiß für dich mein Herz entbrennt,
keine Zunge dir's bekennt.
Bald in Liebesrausch unsinnig,
bald wie Täubchen sanft und innig.

The moon is veiling her face
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The moon is veiling her face,
Sweet love; I am not angry with you.
Were I to afflict you with my anger, tell me,
How could I then love you?

My heart blazes feverishly for you,  
Even if no tongue confesses to it,
One moment left absurd by its intoxication,
Another moment, as gentle and earnest as a little dove.
