Was helfen mir die vielen guten Zeichen?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Was helfen mir die vielen guten Zeichen?
Des Vogels Tod, der Freundin schwarze Hand?
Der Mops von Edelstein, hat er wohl seinesgleichen?
Und hat ihn nicht die Lampe mir gesandt?

Entfernt vom süßen menschlichen Genusse,
Bin ich doch mit dem Jammer nur vertraut.
Ach! warum steht der Tempel nicht am Flusse!
Ach! warum ist die Brücke nicht gebaut!
