Maienlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Man soll hören süßes Singen
In den Auen überall,
Lieblich hell Gesang erklingen
Voraus vor der Nachtigall!

Schauet auf den Anger breit,
Schauet an die lichte Heide,
Wie sie schon sich mit dem Kleide
Zu dem Maien hat bekleid't.

Mancherhande Blümelein
Lachen aus des Maien Tau
In der lichten Sonne Schein;
Schöne Zeit zu werter Schau!

Was soll trösten mir den Mut,
Da mich zwinget Herzensschwere,
Bei der ich viel gerne wäre,
Daß die ferne leben tut.
