    General CommentI know this song is a translation of verses from Chamisso's "Seit ich ihn gesehen" and "Du Ring an meinem Finger" from the set "Frauenliebe und -leben" (the title of Andrew Bird's song) which was set to music by Schumann, but I'm not sure what other poems are in here... I'd guess they're from the same cycle, but those were the only two I recognized. Anyone else know which other ones he used?

    TranslationMy mistake, this song is actually a summary of Chamisso's Frauenliebe und -leben, excluding the poems about motherhood.
    It includes translated lines or themes from:
    1. Seit ich ihn gesehen
    2. Er, der Herrlichste von allen
    4. Du Ring an meinem Finger
    5. Helft mir, ihr Schwestern
    8. Nun hast du mir den ersten Schmerz getan

    K, I should have been able to figure that out much sooner :P
