Wir gingen beide Hand in Hand

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir gingen beide Hand in Hand,
Ihr Auge sprach, was ich empfand,
Es kämpft auf ihren Wangen
Verwirrung und Verlangen.
Gott Amor folgte Schritt vor Schritt,
Sie seufzte still, ich seufzte mit,
Und Nachtigallen sangen.

Jetzt suchte sie zum Busenstrauß
Vergissmeinnicht und Veilchen aus,
Ich bückte mich, und drückte
Die Hand, die Blumen pflückte.
Sie zog die Hand beschämt an sich,
Errötend fragt' ich: Liebst du mich?
Sie schwieg, ward rot, und nickte.
