Blümekens

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kleine Blüten, anspruchslose Blumen,
Waldrandschmuck und Wiesen durcheinander,
rote, weiße, gelbe, blaue Blumen
nahm ich im Vorbeigehn mit nach Hause. 

Kamen alte, liebe Zeiten wieder:
auf den Feldern wehten grüne Hälmchen,
süß im Erlenbusche sang der Stieglitz,
eine ganze Welt von Unschuld sang er mir und dir. 

Nun, seit Jahren, ordnen deine Hände
Perlenschnur und Rosen in den Haaren. 
wie viel schöner, junge Frau
doch schmückten kleine Blumen dich,
die einst wir pflückten, Ich und du.
