Frühlingswölkchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Siehst du, mein Kind, die schneeige Wölkchen?
Wiß', hinter jedem von Engeln ein Völkchen
Lauschen herab von den seligen Höhn;
  Schwingen verwundert die glänzenden Flügel,
Sehn sie die blühenden Thäler und Hügel,
Singen: Wie ist doch die Erde so schön!

  Eia, mein Kind, jetzt könntest du schauen
Tief in den Himmel da droben den blauen,
Sehen die Engelein stehen im Chor;
  Schade, wie schade! darfst nimmer es hoffen,
Grad wo am Himmel die Fensterlein offen,
Ziehen die Engel ein Wölklein davor.


Confirmed with Liederbuch von Friedrich Oser. 1842-1874, Basel: Benno Schwabe Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1875, page 40.
