Selma

Language: German (Deutsch)

Eil, o Mai, mit deinem Brautgesange!
Eil, und röte meines Mädchens Wange,
Und die Rose für den Hochzeitskranz.
Alles taumelt; mir versiegt der Odem;
Unter meinem Fusse brennt der Boden!
Eil! ich überfliege deinen Glanz!

Unsre Seelen schuf im Myrtentale
Gott aus einem morgenroten Strahle,
ähnlich sich wie Wechselmelodien
wie zwei Küsse nacheinander strebend,
die auf heissen Lippen, wonnebebend,
zucken, und zu einem Küsse glühn!
