The Blossom

Merry merry sparrow!
Under leaves so green
A happy blossom
Sees you swift as arrow
Seek your cradle narrow
Near my bosom.
 
Pretty pretty robin!
Under leaves so green
A happy blossom
Hears you sobbing sobbing
Pretty pretty robin
Near my bosom.

Die Blüte

Versions: #1#2
Heit’rer, heit’rer Sperling
unterm Laub so grün!
Da sieht dich eine
glückliche Blüte pfeilschnell ziehn
nah mir am Herzen zu deiner
engen Wiege hin.
 
Hübsches Kehlchen, schönes,
unterm Laub so grün!
Da hört auch eine
glückliche Blüte dein Weinen,
wie Schluchzen tönt es
nah mir am Herzen, Kehlchen, du schönes!
 
Thanks!
