Part of a series or song cycle:

Fünf kleine Lieder (Op. 69)


Ihr Mund ist stets derselbe,
Sein Kuß mir immer neu,
Ihr Auge noch dasselbe,
Sein freier Blick mir treu;
O du liebes Einerlei,
Wie wird aus dir so mancherlei!


Her mouth is always the same,
Its kiss is ever new,
Her eyes remain the same,
Their frank gaze true to me;
O you dear sameness,
The diversity that comes of you!
Translation © Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
