Durch den Wald, im Mondenscheine

Language: German (Deutsch)

Durch den Wald, im Mondenscheine,
Sah ich jüngst die Elfen reuten;
Ihre Hörner hört' ich klingen,
Ihre Glöckchen hört' ich läuten.
Ihre weißen Rößlein trugen
Güldnes Hirschgeweih und flogen
Rasch dahin, wie wilde Schwänenzüge
Kam es durch die Luft gezogen.
Lächelnd nickte mir die Kön'gin,
Lächelnd, im Vorüberreuten.
Galt das meiner neuen Liebe,
Oder soll es Tod bedeuten?
