German.png German text

Nun, ihr Musen, genug!
Vergebens strebt ihr zu schildern,
wie sich Jammer und Glück
wechseln in liebender Brust.
Heilen könnet die Wunden
ihr nicht, die Amor geschlagen,
aber Linderung kommt einzig,
ihr Guten, von euch.

Now, you Muses, enough!
In vain you strive to describe
how misery and happiness
alternate in a loving breast.
You cannot heal the wounds
that Amor has caused,
but solace can come
only from you, Kindly Ones.
