Als alle Knospen sprangen, 1 
Da ist in meinem Herzen
Die Liebe aufgegangen.

Als alle Vögel sangen, 2
Da hab' ich ihr gestanden
Mein Sehnen und Verlangen.

Mach' ich die kleinen Lieder;

Und flattern nach ihrem Herzen.

Doch kommen sie wieder und klagen,
Und klagen, und wollen nicht sagen,
Was sie im Herzen schauten.

Noch einmal säh' ich dich gar zu gern!

Sie liegt noch und schläft und träumt von mir.
