Original text and translations

English.png English translation


The lovely rose blooms in its day,
And then no more;
The nightingale sings while she may,
And then no more.

The joys of love, They bring delight,
Till at our death we lay us down within the grave,
And then no more.

Not endless shall endure the grief
which rends thy heart;
The winds may wildly roar and rave,
And then no more.

Translation by John Troutbeck

German.png German text

Der Rose Pracht hat ihren Tag
Und dann nicht mehr.
Die Nachtigall schlägt ihren Schlag
Und dann nicht mehr.

Der Liebe Glück, es labt so lang,
Bis es der Tod Gebettet in den Sarkophag,
Und dann nicht mehr.

Doch ewig ist auch nicht der Harm,
Der dich zerreißt;
Die Winde brausen durch den Hag,
Und dann nicht mehr.
