Am Bache

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Bache sitz' ich lange Zeit
Und lausche,
Ob er vor lauter Seligkeit
So rausche.

Er weiß wohl was ein liebend Herz
Mag sinnen,
Wie eigen Lust sich eint mit Schmerz

Das singt er nun im Morgenwind
So helle.
Vom Kuß der Sonne trunken rinnt
Die Welle.

Im süßen Schauer küssen sich
Die Bäume,
Ich seh's mein Kind, und denk' an dich
Und träume.
