Du liebes Auge, willst dich tauchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du liebes Auge, willst dich tauchen,
In meines [Augs]1 [geheimste]2 Tiefe,
Zu [spähen]3, wo in blauen Gründen
Verborgen eine Perle schliefe?

Du liebes Auge, tauche nieder,
Und in die klare Tiefe dringe
Und lächle, wenn ich dir [dein Bildniß]4
Als schönste Perle wiederbringe.
