Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder!
Meine Augen schlag' ich nieder,
Wie ertappt auf böser That;
Selber darf ich nicht getrauen,
Ihrem Wachsen zuzuschauen:
Deine Neugier ist Verrath.

Bienen, wenn sie Zellen bauen,
Lassen auch nicht zu sich schauen,
Schauen selber auch nicht zu.
[Wann]1 die reichen Honigwaben
Sie zu Tag gefördert haben,
Dann vor allen nasche du!
