Die letzte Rose vom öden Hag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die letzte Rose vom öden Hag,
O nimm sie, Geliebte, von mir,
Wie einst meiner Seele letzter Schlag 
Hineilen wird zu dir! 

Wir tauschen heute den letzten Gruß 
In seliger Einsamkeit;
Wir küßen  --  und küßen den letzten Kuß,
O Gott, für lange Zeit! 

Die blasse Rose freuet sich,
Zu welken an deiner Brust;
Dürft' sterben in deinen Armen ich,
O Liebste, welche Lust!
