An jeder Hand die Finger
hatt' ich bedeckt mit Ringen,
die mir geschenkt mein Bruder
in seinem Liebessinn.
Und einen nach dem andern
gab ich dem schönen,
aber unwürdigen Jüngling hin.

by Emily Ezust of The Lied and Art Song Page used with translator's permission
On each hand were my fingers
bedecked with rings
that my brother had bestowed on me
with love.
And one after another
did I give to that handsome
but unworthy lad.
