by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Meiner schlafenden Zuleima
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
  Meiner schlafenden Zuleima
Rinnt aufs Herz, ihr Thränentropfen;
Dann wird ja das süße Herzchen
Sehnsuchtvoll nach Abdul klopfen.

  Meiner schlafenden Zuleima
Spielt ums Ohr, ihr Seufzer trübe;
Dann träumt ja das blonde Köpfchen
Heimlich süß von Abduls Liebe.

  Meiner schlafenden Zuleima
Ström aufs Händchen, Herzblutquelle;
Dann trägt ja ihr süßes Händchen,
Abduls [Herzblut]1 rot und helle.

  Ach! der Schmerz ist stumm geboren,
Ohne Zunge in dem Munde,
Hat nur Thränen, hat nur Seufzer,
Und nur Blut aus Herzenswunde.
