Thirsis

Tirsis

Der Vogel rufet ohne Ruh
The bird calls ceaselessly
im Walde seiner Gattin zu:
in the wood to his mate:
Ach liebe doch, ach liebe!
Ah, but love, ah, love!
Die Gattin hört des Gatten Lieder;
The mate hears the songs of her consort;
ihr sehnlich Girren sagt ihm wieder:
her ardent warbling replies to him:
Ich liebe!
I love!
