by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Liebesqual verschmäht mein Herz
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Liebesqual verschmäht mein Herz,
Sanften Jammer, süßen Schmerz;
Nur vom Tücht'gen will ich wissen,
Heißem [Äuglen]1, derben Küssen.
Sei ein armer Hund erfrischt
Von der Lust, mit Pein gemischt!
Mädchen, gib der frischen Brust
Nichts von Pein und alle Lust.
