Die Wollust in den Maien

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Wollust in den Maien,
die Zeit hat Freuden bracht,
Die Blümlein mancherleien,
Ein jeglichs nach sein'r G'stalt,
Das sind die roten Röselein,
Der Feyl, der grüne Klee;
Von herzer Liebe scheiden
Das tut weh.

Der Vögelein Gesange,
Die Zeit hat Freuden bracht,
Ihr Lieb tät mich bezwingen,
Freundlich sie zu mir sprach:
Sollt, schönes Lieb, ich fragen dich,
Wollst fein berichten mich.
Genad mir, schöne Frauen,
So sprach ich.

Nach manchem Seufzer schwere,
Komm ich wohl wieder dar,
Nach Jammer und nach Leide
Seh ich dein Äuglein klar.
Ich bitt dich, Auserwählte mein,
Laß dir befohlen sein
Das treue, junge Herze,
Das Herze mein.
