Zwei Augen sind's, aus deren Blicken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zwei Augen sind's, aus deren Blicken
Die Sonne selbst ihr Feuer stahl,
Seht, Männerherzen, gleich den Mücken,
Dreh'n taumelnd sich in ihrem Strahl.

O sonnt' ich doch in diesen Augen,
Den Mücken gleich, mein Angesicht,
O dürft ich Lieb' aus ihnen saugen,
Und wärmen mich an ihrem Licht!
