Rastlose Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Fischlein auf silbernen Wogen
Springt freudig im Abendduft,
Die Sonn' ist hinab gezogen
Zur Ruh aus blauer Luft.
Der Sterne goldner Flimmer
Strahlt wieder aus stiller Fluth,
Alles ruht im Mondesschimmer,
Meine Liebe nicht rastet noch ruht.

Im schauklenden Nachen sich wieget
Der Fischer in süsser Lust,
Sein Liebchen am Busen ihm lieget,
Erfüllet mit Wonne die Brust.
Ach, ruht ihr liebenden Herzen,
Ruht seelig auf stiller Fluth,
Ach, mir macht die Liebe nur Schmerzen,
Meine Liebe nicht rastet noch ruht.
