Scheiden und Meiden
EnglishDeutsch
In Scheiden und Meiden the breezy cheerfulness of its bright hobby-horse rhythms is offset, as so often in these poems, by a darker thread, as in the third stanza (Mahler doesn’t set the second stanza), where the theme of parting brings a reference to infant mortality (‘Es scheidet das Kind wohl in der Wieg’).
