by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Morgens steh' ich auf und frage
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Morgens steh' ich auf und frage:
Kommt feins Liebchen heut?
Abends sink' ich hin und klage:
Aus blieb sie auch heut.
 
In der Nacht mit meinem Kummer
lieg' ich schlaflos, wach;
träumend, wie im halben Schlummer,
träumend wandle ich bei Tag.
