Come again!

John Dowland (1562-1626)
Übertragung: Barbara Heuschober

Come again!
Sweet love doth now invite
thy graces that refrain,
to do me due delight,
to see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die
with thee again
in sweetest sympathy.

Come again!
That I may cease to mourn
through thy unkind disdain.
For now left and forlorn
I sit, I sigh, I weep, I faint, I die
in deadly pain
and endless misery.

Gentle Love,
draw forth thy wounding dart;
thou canst not pierce her heart.
For I that do approve
by sighs and tears more hot than are thy shafts
did tempt while she,
while she for triumphs laughs.
