Vor meinem Fenster der Rosenstrauch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vor meinem Fenster der Rosenstrauch
Ist lange schon verdorrt;
Für den er blühte, ist ja auch
Schon lange, lange fort. 

Und blüht' ich denn nicht auch für ihn,
Für ihn mit Leib und Herz?
Die Rose starb vor Frost dahin,
So sterb' ich wohl vor Schmerz.
