Es steigen die Glöckchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es steigen die Glöckchen
Aus schmelzendem Eis
Und schütteln die Röckchen,
Halb grün und halb weiss.
Es knarren die Eichen,
Befreit rauscht der Bach,
Die Kälte will weichen,
Der Frühling wird wach!

Die Mutter Sibylle
Tut's Schiebfenster auf
Und schaut durch die Brille
Zum Giebel hinauf.
Zwei Kätzelein schleichen
Verliebt über's Dach,
Die Kälte will weichen,
Der Frühling wird wach!

Was kommt dort getänzelt,
Trägt Söckel am Schuh?
Es trippelt und schwänzelt
Und kichert mir zu.
Verheissendes Zeichen,
Beherzt folg' ich nach,
Die Kälte will weichen,
Der Frühling wird wach!
