Am stillen Hain
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
  [Am]1 stillen Hain,
Im [Abendschein]2,
Wenn der Himmel sich röthet,
Die Nachtigall flötet,
Gedenk' ich dein.
 
  Bey Mondenschein,
Am nahen Hain,
Den die Käfer umschwirren,
Die Täubchen durchgirren,
Gedenk' ich dein.
 
  Ich geh' im Hain
Wohl ganz allein,
Und seh keine Bäume,
Und hänge und träume
Von dir allein. --

From the far distance
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
  [By]1 the quiet grove,
In the [evening light]2,
When the heavens redden
[And] the nightingale flutes,
I think of you.
 
  In moonlight,
Beside the nearby grove
About which beetles whirr,
Through which little doves coo,
I think of you
 
  I walk in the grove
All alone,
And see no trees,
And linger and dream
Of you alone. --
