Margarete Münsterberg, ed., trans.  A Harvest of German Verse.  1916.
 
The Rose Complained (From the “Songs of Mirza Schaffy”)
By Friedrich von Bodenstedt (1819–1892)
 
THE ROSE complained, her fragrance fled,
Ah, far too swiftly it was going—
The lovely scent that spring was giving.
 
And then to comfort her I said,
Her fragrance through my songs was flowing,        5
And there forevermore was living.
