Beim Maitrank

Language: German (Deutsch)

Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
Waldmeisterlein!
Du würzig duft'ges Kräutelein,
Wie blühest du so zart und fein
Im Buchenhag, am Wiesenrain.
Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
Waldmeisterlein!

Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
Waldmeisterlein!
Es ist so heisser Sonnenschein
Kein Regen fällt auf Strauch und Stein,
O weh! was schafft der Durst für Pein!
Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
Waldmeisterlein!

Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
Waldmeisterlein!
Nur in die Schale frisch hinein,
Zum Nektar mach für uns den Wein,
Dann sollst du hoch gepriesen sein.
Waldmeisterlein, Waldmeisterlein,
 Waldmeisterlein!
