DAS VERGISSMEINNICHT
Vincenz Zusner

THE FORGET-ME-NOT
Vincenz Zusner

Das liebliche Vergissmeinnicht,
das sie mir scheidend gab,
es lässt von seinem Farbenlicht
und Scheinen gar nicht ab.
The lovely forget-me-not,
Which she gave me when we parted,
Cannot stop from keeping its bright colour
and its shine.
Und wisst Ihr, wie das kommen mag,
dass es nicht welken kann?
Ich feucht das Blümchen jeden Tag
mit meinen Tränen an.
And do you know why it is
That it cannot fade?
I moisten the little flower every day
With my tears.
