Das Veilchen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Czech (Čeština)

Warum, holdes Veilchen,
So verborgen stehst du?
Vor den Blumen allen
Süsse Düfte wehst du.

Vor den Blumen allen,
Die ihr Haupt erheben,
Wenn der Lenz zur Erde
Bringet neues Leben.

Magst dich, holdes Veilchen,
Tief im Gras verstecken,
Dein balsamisch Düften
Lässt dich gleich entdecken.

Ist gepaart die Schönheit
Edelem Gemüte,
Nimmer bleibt verborgen
Dann die schöne Blüte.

Stiller Tugend Sinnbild,
Liebes Veilchen, blühst du,
Drum in zartem Purpur
Immerdar erglühst du!
