Die tausend Grüße

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die tausend Grüße,
Die wir dir senden,
Ostwind dir müsse
Keinen entwenden!

Zu dir im Schwarme
Zieh'n die Gedanken.
Könnten die Arme
Auch dich umranken!

Du in die Lüfte
Hauche dein Sehnen!
Laß deine Düfte,
Küsse mich wähnen.

Schwör' es! Ich hör'es:
Daß du mir gut bist,
Hör' es! Ich schwör' es:
Daß du mein Blut bist.

Dein war und blieb' ich,
Dein bin und bleib' ich
Schon vielmal [schrieb']1 ich's,
Noch vielmal [schreib']2 ich's.
