Available translation(s): DUT ITA
Turteltaube, du klagest so laut
Und raubest dem Armen seinen einzigen Trost,
Süßen vergessenden Schlaf.
Turteltaub', ich jammre wie du,
Und berge den Jammer in's verwundete Herz,
In die verschlossene Brust.
Ach, die hart verteilende Liebe!
Sie gab dir die laute Jammerklage zum Trost,
Mir den verstummenden Gram!
