Verlornes Glück

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sitze hier an lieber Stelle
Wo ich einst nicht sass alleine;
Damals klang hier süsse Rede
Wo ich heut' mein Los beweine.

Schön und hell nennt man die Erde,
Voller Lust und voller Freuden;
Doch ist mir sie ewig dunkel,
Weil ich soll ihr Schönstes meiden.

Von den vielen duft'gen Kräutern
Die in diesem Garten stehen,
Wird kein einz'ges, ach, mich heilen;
Ich muss qualvoll untergehen.
