Du bist wie eine Julinacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist wie eine Julinacht,
So süss, so weich, so warm!
Um Deiner Glieder heisse Pracht
Schliesst selig sich mein Arm.
Ich trete trunken in das Land
Der Göttin Venus ein
Und schliesse mich and Deiner Hand
In ihren Liebesreihn.

Ich trinke sinnbetörend Glück
Aus Deiner Lippen Glut!
Du hasst and Deinen Schoss gebannt
Mir Seel' und Leib und Blut.
Ich bir dir völlig untertan,
Ein Bettler Dir am Tor,
Von Liebe trunken ein sel'ger Mann
Den Deine Gnad' erkor.
