Das ist der wohlvertraute Flieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Das]1 ist der wohlvertraute Flieder.
Hier weilt' ich einst als frohes Kind
Und stammelte die ersten Lieder,
Gewiegt von Träumen hold und lind.

Das Glück auf ungestümer Welle
Entfloh mir in der Welt Gebraus.
Such' ich an der geliebten Stelle,
Ach alles sieht viel anders aus.

Die kleine Bank ist weggenommen,
Hoch aufwuchs das Gebüsch umher,
Und mag ich selbst auch wiederkommen,
Doch kommt das frohe Kind nicht mehr!
