Secret Love

“Heimliche Liebe”, a traditional German song in my own arrangement:

“No coal, no fire can burn so hot
As secret love, known to none.

No rose, no carnation, so beautifully blooms
As two lovers when they are together…

As the forest bird sings at the first breath of Spring,
So your lovely discourse enters my heart.

Two stars in the sky, two roses in the hedge:
My heart and your heart beat as one.”

(translation by Ishmael Wallace)
