Alln├Ąchtlich im Traume seh' ich dich
All night long, I see you as I dream

Dichterliebe A Poet's Love

Heine

All night long, I see you as I dream,
You seem friendly, eyes meet,
And with a cry of anguish
I fall down at your feet

You look at me so sadly
And shake your golden curls,
And from the corner of your eyes
Come tears that look like pearls.

You confide in me: a secret,
A sprig of cypress sever.
I wake up, the sprig has gone
And the secret's lost for ever.
