Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)


Vögelein durchrauscht die Luft

Vögelein durchrauscht die Luft,
Sucht nach einem Aste;
Und das Herz ein Herz begehrts,
Wo es selig raste.
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)

A little bird flies through the skies

A little bird flies through the skies,
searching for a branch;
thus does one heart seek another,
where it might rest in bliss.
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
