Sie saß am Rebenfenster

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sie saß am Rebenfenster
Im stillen Kämmerlein,
Und schaute hinaus in den Frühling
Und der Frühling schaute [hinein]1.

Und wer den Weg gegangen,
Blieb [stille grüßend]2 stehn,
Von allen den Blumen des Frühlings
[Auch]3 die schönste Rose zu seh'n. 

Die schickte freundlich lächelnd
Ein frühlingsduftend Wort;
[Ein sehnendes Herz zog weiter
Und die Rose blühete fort.]4
