German.png German text

Nagen am Herzen fühl ich ein Gift mir.
Kann sich ein Mädchen,
ohne zu fröhnen zärtlichem Hang,
fassen ein ganzes wonneberaubtes Leben entlang?

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)
Based on a text in Polish by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist, [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

I feel a poison gnawing at my heart.
Is it possible for a maiden
not to give in to her tender inclinations
and live her entire life robbed of bliss?
