Honeysuckle (Geißblatt)

English translation


Versions: #1#2
"Wake up, wake up,"
Whispered the dew
As it drips down on my face from the spring-leaf above.
The winds of summer sigh and moan the hidden secrets
That are well concealed in every soul.
Ocean meadows, ashen valleys, and shores of autumn
A winter moon now sinks beneath the sea.
One last glance to a starry night before I rest
One more smell of the fragrant honeysuckle
"Good night, good night."
"Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise!"

„Wach auf, wach auf,“
Sagte der Tau,
Wie er auf mich von dem Federblatt fällt.
Der Sommerwind seufzt und jammert die Geheimnisse,
Die in jeder Seele gut versteckt.
Auenwälder, Aschetäler, Herbstgestade,
