Aus Shakespeare's Othello I
Language: German (Deutsch) after the English
Das arme Kind! sie saß und sang,
An einem Baum saß sie,
Die Hand gelegt auf ihre Brust,
Den Kopf gesstüzt aufs Knie.
Der Bach floß still vorbei und stimmt'
In ihre Seufzer ein;
Und ihrer Tränen heiße Flut
Singt all ein grüner Weidenzweig
Der muß mein Kränzchen sein.
O tadelt nicht sein hartes Herz,
Mein Herz gehört doch sein.
