Im Zimmer
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA POR
Herbstsonnenschein.
Der liebe Abend blickt so still herein.
Ein Feuerlein rot
Knistert im Ofenloch und loht.
So, mein Kopf auf deinen Knie'n,
So ist mir gut.
Wenn mein Auge so in deinem ruht,
Wie leise die Minuten zieh'n.

In the chamber
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Autumn sunlight.
The lovely evening peers so quietly in.
A little red fire
crackles in the stove and flares up. 
And with my head upon your knee,
I am contented.
When my eyes rest in yours,
how gently do the minutes pass!
