Es geht ein Wehen durch den Wald

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es geht ein Wehen durch den Wald,
die Windsbraut hör ich singen.
Sie singt von einem Buhlen gut
und bis sie dem in Armen ruht,
muss sie noch [weit]1 in bangem Mut
sich durch die Lande schwingen.

Der Sang der klingt so schauerlich,
der klingt so wild, so trübe,
das heiße Sehnen ist erwacht,
mein Schatz zu tausend gute Nacht!
Es kommt der Tag eh du's gedacht,
der eint getreue Liebe!
