Lebet wohl, geliebte Bäume

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Lebet wohl, geliebte Bäume,
Wachset in der Himmelsluft.
Tausend liebevolle Träume
Schlingen sich durch euren Duft.
 
   Doch was steh' ich und verweile?
Wie so schwer, so bang ist's mir?
Ja, ich gehe! Ja, ich eile!
Aber ach mein Herz bleibt hier.
