Die Neigung

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nein! Ich widerstrebe nicht mehr;
Ich liebe dich, Selmar, auf ewig!
Auf ewig! bin ich die deinige, Freund!
Da! nimm sie, die Pfänder der Treue
Schwur und Handschlag, Tränen und Kuss!

Ach aber, mein Selmar! ach gnade!
Wohl schützt mich vor andern die Liebe,
Doch vor dir! wer schützete mich?
Wenn minder edel du nun dächtest,
Und meiner Unschuld Angeln legtest?

Ich liebe dich! wer schützte,
wer schützte mich? mein Selmar,
Ach wer?
