by Emanuel von Geibel (1815 - 1884)

In meinem Garten die Nelken
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE IRI POR
In meinem Garten die Nelken
mit ihrem Purpurstern
müssen nun alle verwelken,
   denn du bist fern.

Auf meinem Herde die Flammen
die ich bewacht so gern,
sanken in Asche zusammen,
   denn du bist fern.

Die Welt ist mir verdorben,
mich grüßt nicht Blume nicht Stern,
mein Herz ist lange gestorben,
   denn du bist fern.
