Denk, o Lieber! Deines armen Freundes!

Language: German (Deutsch)

v. Kronhelm
     Denk, o Lieber! Deines armen Freundes!
Stark, und heiß, und treu, wie Geßners Schäfer,
     Hat sein Herz geliebt;
       Aber weine, Freund!
     Ich werde sterben!
Denn ich liebte stark, und heiß, und treu!
     Und zerrissen ist das Band der Liebe!
       Ach die Zeiten sind dahin,
Da ich glücklich war, wie Geßners Schäfer!
     Weine, Freund! und denke meiner!
