Und wie mag die Liebe dir kommen sein?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Und wie mag die Liebe dir kommen sein?
Kam sie wie ein Sonnen, ein Blütenschein,
Kam sie wie ein Beten? -- Erzähle:

Ein Glück löste leuchtend [aus Himmeln]1 sich los
Und hing mit gefalteten Schwingen groß
An meiner blühenden Seele.
