Das war der Tag der weißen Chrysanthemen, Mir bangte fast vor seiner Pracht... Und dann, dann kamst du mir die Seele nehmen Tief in der Nacht. Mir war so bang, und du kamst lieb und leise, Ich hatte grad im Traum an dich gedacht. Du kamst, und leis' wie eine Märchenweise Erklang die Nacht.

Este foi o dia dos brancos crisântemos, Eu quase que temia sua formosura... E então, então tu vieste tomar a minha alma Dentro da noite profunda. Eu tinha tanto medo, e tu vieste doce e em silêncio, Eu tinha acabado de pensar em ti, em sonhos, Tu vieste, e como em uma canção de contos de fadas Ressoava a noite.
