Oh Liszt’s “Ständchen” softly plays,
A melancholic tune that sways,
The piano’s voice sings with such grace,
As Schubert’s melody finds its place.
A romantic mood fills the air,
A bittersweet love that lingers there,
The notes ring out with heartfelt pain,
As Liszt’s variations sweetly sustain.
A tribute to Schubert’s tender song,
Liszt’s arrangement echoes strong,
A piano’s voice that gently weeps,
A haunting melody that never sleeps.
In “Ständchen,” we hear a tale,
Of love and loss that will prevail,
A small poem of beauty and grace,
That Liszt and Schubert forever embrace.
