You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Weißt du noch, wie ich am Felsen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weißt du noch, wie ich am [Felsen]1
Bei den Veilchen dich belauschte?
Weißt du noch den Fliederstrauch,
Wo der Strom vorüber rauschte?
Weißt du noch den Bergespfad,
Wo ich um den Strauß dich bat,
  Weißt du noch?

Ach, es war ein süßes Bild,
Als du da errötend standest
Und zur Erde all die Blumen
Fielen, die zum Strauß du [wandest]2!
Deine liebe kleine Hand
Spielte mit dem blauen Band,
  Weißt du noch?

Und es sahen Fels und Strom
Dein Erröten und dein Beben,
Sahen auch den ersten Kuß,
Halb genommen, halb gegeben!
Und des Himmels goldner Strahl
Ueberflog Gebirg und Thal;
  Weißt du noch?
