by Friedrich Rückert (1788 - 1866)

Ich will die Fluren meiden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Ich will die Fluren meiden
Mit meinem trüben Gram,
Daß nicht der Lenz muß scheiden,
Wo ich zu nahe kam;
Daß nicht der Quell zu springen,
[Zu blüh'n]1 der Blume Herz,
Die Nachtigall zu singen
Vergißt ob meinem Schmerz.
