SHORT SYNOPSES OF THE SONGS.
'The Muse' : The Muse loved me in my youth. She placed the seven reeds in my eager fingers, and sometimes, as a reward, she would play them herself. Then what wondrous melodies enraptured my soul.
'The Valse': How. can I forget that hour when we danced together? I prayed that it. might last for ever.
'O'er thee I hend': How I am thrilled when the tempest howls, and the waves roar. Then all my soul is flame and fire, born to Heaven on the wings of rapture.
'Verzweiflung' (Despair) : The Church bell tolls the knell of my happiness. What shall I do ? I have no peace, no rest, my heart is sore.
'Die Quelle' (The Well): A maiden went to the well. A youth met her there. It was late when she returned. ' Do not scold me, Mother; the birds were singing so beautifully.'
'Friseh gesungen' (Gaily sing) : Waste no time in fretting if worry and pain are thy lot, but gaily go singing, and all shall he well.
