WIEGENLIED
D498 November 1816; published in 1829
Schlafe, holder, siisser Knabe,
Leise wiegt dich deiner Mutter Hand;
Sanfte Ruhe, milde Labe
Bringt dir schwebend dieses Wiegenband.
Schlafe in dem siissen Grabe,
Noch beschiitzt dich deiner Mutter Arm,
Alle Wunsche, alle Habe
Fasst sie liebend, alle liebewarm.
Schlafe in der Flaumen Schoosse, Noch umtont dich lauter Liebeston, Eine Lilie, eine Rose, Nach dem Schlafe werd' sie dir zum Lohn.
Franz Grillpaner (1791-1872)
STANDCHEN
(first version)
D920July 1827; published 1891
Zogernd leise
In des Dunkels nacht'ger Hiille
Sind wir hier;
Und den Finger sanft gekriimmt,
Leise, leise,
Pochen wir
An des Liebchens Kammerthiir.
Doch nun steigend,
Schwellend, schwellend,
Mit vereinter Stimme, Laut
Rufen aus wir hochvertraut:
Schlaf du nicht,
Wenn der Neigung Stimme spricht!
Sucht' ein Weiser nah und feme Menschen einst mit der Laterne; Wieviel seltner dann als Gold Menschen, uns geneigt und hold Drum wenn Freundschaft, Liebe spricht, Freundin, Liebchen, schlaf du nicht!
Aber was in alien Reichen
War' dem Schlummer zu vergleichen
Drum statt Worten und statt Gaben
Sollst du nun auch Ruhe haben.
Noch ein Griisschen, noch ein Wort,
Es verstummt dir frohe Weise,
Leise, leise,
Schleichen wir uns, ja, schleichen wir uns wider fort!
LULLABY
Sleep, dear, sweet boy,
Your mother's hand rocks you softly.
This swaying cradle strap
Brings you gentle peace and tender comfort.
Sleep in the sweet grave;
Your mother's arms still protect you.
All her wishes, all her possessions
She holds lovingly, with loving warmth.
Sleep in her lap, soft as down;
Purely notes of love still echo around you.
A lily, a rose
Shall be your reward after sleep.
SERENADE
Softly, hesitantly,
Cloaked in night's darkness,
We have come here;
And with fingers gently curled,
Softly, softly
We knock
On the beloved's bedroom door.
But now, our emotion rising,
Swelling,
Surging, with united voice
We call out loud, in warm friendship:
'Do not sleep
When the voice of affection speaks.'
Once a wise man with his lantern Sought people near and far; How much rarer, then, than gold Are people who are fondly disposed to us And so, when friendship and love speak, Do not sleep, friend, beloved!
But what in all the world's realms
Can be compared to sleep
And so, instead of words and gifts,
You shall now have rest.
Just one more greeting, one more word,
And our happy song ceases;
Softly, softly
We steal away again.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)
ERLKONIG
(fourth version)
D328 October 1815();
published in 1821 as Op 1
Wer reitet so spat durch
Nacht und Wind
Es ist der Vater mit seinem Kind:
Er hat den Knaben wohl in dem Arm,
Er fasst ihn sicher, er halt ihn warm.
"Mein Sohn, was birgst du so bang dein Gesicht" "Siehst, Vater, du den Erlkonig nicht Den Erlenkonig mit Kron und Schweif" "Mein Sohn, es ist ein Nebelstreif'
"Du liebes Kind, komm, geh mit mir! Gar schone Spiele spiel ich mit dir; Manch bunte Blumen sind an dem Strand, Meine Mutter hat manch gulden Gewand."
"Mein Vater, mein Vater, und hiirest du nicht, Was Erlenkonig mir leise verspricht" "Sei ruhig, bleibe ruhig, mein Kind: In diirren Blattem sauselt der Wind."
"Willst, feiner Knabe, du mit mir gehn Meine Tochter am diistem Ort Meine Tochter fiihren den nachtlichen Reihn Und wiegen und tanzen und singen dich ein."
"Mein Vater, mein Vater, und siehst du nicht dort Erlkonigs Tochter am dustern Ort" "Mein Sohn, mein Sohn, ich seh es genau: Es scheinen die alten Weiden so grau."
"Ich liebe dich, mich reizt deine schone Gestalt; Und bist du nicht willig, so brauch ich Gewalt." "Mein Vater, mein Vater, jetzt fasst er mich an! Erlkonig hat mir ein Leids getan!"
Dem Vater grausets, er reitet geschwind, Er halt in Armen das achzende Kind, Erreicht den Hof mit Miihe und Not: In seinen Armen das Kind war tot.
THE ERLKING
Who rides so late through
the night and wind
It is the father with his child.
He has the boy in his arms,
He holds him safely, he keeps him warm.
"My son, why do you hide your face in fear" "Father, can you not see the Erlking The Erlking with his crown and tail" "My son, it is a streak of mist."
'Sweet child, come with me, I'll play wonderful games with you; Many a pretty flower grows on the shore, My mother has many a golden robe.'
"Father, father, do you not hear
What the Erlking softly promises me"
"Calm, be calm my child:
The wind is rustling in the withered leaves."
'Won't you come with me, my fine lad
My daughters shall wait upon you;
My daughters lead the nightly dance,
And will rock, and dance, and sing you to sleep.
"Father, father, can you not see Erlking's daughters there in the darkness" "My son, I can see clearly: It is the old grey willows gleaming."
'I love you, your fair form allures me,
And if you don't come willingly, I'll use force.'
"Father, father, now he's seizing me!
The Erlking has hurt me!"
The father shudders, he rides swiftly, He holds the moaning child in his arms; With one last effort he reaches home; The child lay dead in his arms.
