German poetry, anybody?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to prepare for a German lieder piece by Brahms, and I'm having a bit of trouble with the pronunciation. Is there anybody who might be able to help?

The text is by H. Lingg:

Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer,

Nur wie Schleier liegt mein Kummer

Zitternd über mir.

Oft im Traume hör' ich dich

Rufen drauß vor meiner Tür,

Niemand wacht und öffnet dir,

Ich erwach' und weine bitterlich.

Ja, ich werde sterben müssen,

Eine Andre wirst du küssen,

Wenn ich bleich und kalt.

Eh' die Maienlüfte weh'n,

Eh' die Drossel singt im Wald:

Willst du mich noch einmal sehen,

Komm, o komme bald!

...help in what way? I know some german, pronounce it pretty well and so on... but I guess there should be some natives around...

But what are you asking for?

Max speaks German, I'll link him to this thread. He's in Brazil now I think, so it'll take him a while to get back - is it too late?
