Vers 6
Ward euch ihrer minder,
als die Kindheit floh,
wallte nicht gesünder
eure Brust und froh?
Bei der Liebe Sehnen
wünschtet ihr euch mehr,
blühten junge Schönen
fühlend um euch her.

English Translation

Verse 6
Even if the number of joys decreased,
once childhood flew,
did your breast later not prove
healthier and happy?
You were wishing for more
when you were longing for love,
and young passionate beauties
were blossoming around you.
