Original text and translations

German.png German text

Rosen steckt mir an die Mutter,
weil ich gar so trübe bin.
Sie hat recht, die Rose sinket,
so wie ich, entblättert hin.

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)
Based on a text in Russian by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

Mother gave me roses
because I am so troubled.
She is right: roses droop
just as I do, wilting away.
