by Friedrich Rückert (1788 - 1866)

Meine Töne still und heiter
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Meine Töne still und heiter,
  Zu der Liebsten steigt hinan!
  O daß ich auf eurer Leiter
  Zu ihr auf nicht steigen kann.

Leget, o ihr süßen Töne,
  An die Brust ihr meinen Schmerz,
  Weil nicht will die strenge Schöne,
  Daß ich ihr mich leg ans Herz.
