Ich dachte nur an Leben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich dachte nur an Leben
Als ich von Lust umgeben
Zur Zeit des Maies sass
Im blumenvollen Gras.

Es schwanden Gras und Rosen.
Zur Wiese falb von Moosen
Schaut' ich mit Schmerz hinab
Und dachte still an's Grab!

Nun ist dort Schnee zu schauen.
Da denk' ich schon an's Tauen,
Dass gleich dem letzten Schnee
Verrinne jedes Weh!
