Deine Augen sind zwei Sonnen

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Deine Augen sind zwei Sonnen,
Strahlend in dem eignen Blau:
Deine Wangen sind zwei Rosen
Auf der morgenrothen Au!
   Deine Brust ist eine Lilie
In dem weißen Mondenlicht:
Und Dein Herz ist eine Blüthe,
Die gar süße Frucht verspricht!
   Und Du selbst bist Sonn' und Rose[,]
Blüth' und Lilie dazu:
Aber Sonn' und Ros' und Lilie,
Immer sind sie noch nicht Du!
