Ich saß bei jener Linde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich saß bei jener Linde
Mit meinem trauten Kinde,
Wir saßen Hand in Hand.
Kein Blättchen rauscht' im Winde,
Die Sonne schien gelinde
Herab aufs stille Land.

Wir saßen ganz vershwiegen
Mit innigem Vergnügen,
Das Herz kaum merklich schlug.
Was sollten wir auch sagen?
Was konnten wir uns fragen?
Wir wußten ja genug.

Es mocht uns nichts mehr fehlen,
Kein Sehnen konnt uns quälen,
Nichts Liebes war uns fern.
Aus liebem Aug ein Grüßen,
Vom lieben Mund ein Küssen
Gab eins dem andern gern.
