I could not drink it, Sweet (German translation)

English
A A

I could not drink it, Sweet

I could not drink it, Sweet,
Till You have tasted first,
Though cooler than the Water was
The Thoughtfulness of Thirst.

Ich konnt’s nicht trinken, Lieb

Ich konnt’s nicht trinken, Lieb,
eh’ du’s zuerst getan -
noch kühler als das Wasser war
schon der Gedank’ daran.
 
Thanks!
