|~ Denn so wie Du so lieblich u. so schön ~|
|The verse on this ca. 1900 1/2 L Porcelain POG stein is the ending of each stanza of an song called Denke dir, mein Liebchen (Think, My Darling) which appears in an 1865 Taschenliederbuch (Pocket Songbook). In the song fairies are trying to entice a sleeping person to join them, but thoughts of his love dissuade him.|
Denn so wie Du so lieblich
u. so schön
das glaube mir ist keine der Feen!
Because as you are so lovely
and so beautiful,
believe me, none of the fairies is (like you)!
