Geheimniß (Unverstanden)

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im dunkelgrünen Walde blüht eine Rose roth:
Verwundert stehn die Bäume,
Sie blüht nur Liebesträume,
Sie schmachtet in den Tod.

Im dunkelgrünen Walde singt eine Nachtigall:
Verwundert stehn die Finken,
Nur Rosenglut zu trinken
Stirbt sie mit süßem Schall.

Im dunkelgrünen Walde da rauscht ein kühler Bronn:
Verwundert muß er lauschen,
Vorüber geht sein Rauschen
Und plaudert nun davon.
