Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)

Wie des Abends schöne Röte

Wie des Abends schöne Röte
Möcht ich arme Dirne glühn,
Einem, Einem zu gefallen,
Sonder Ende Wonne sprühn.

Like a lovely sunset

Like a lovely sunset
I, a humble girl, would glow,
and find favour with one alone,
radiating endless rapture.
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
