Schwarze Augen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach, in dem funklenden,
träumerisch dunkelnden
Aug' meiner Holden,
Da lacht mir die herzliche
Liebe entgegen
In freudiger Gluht,
Winkt mir die Sehnsucht,
Die bange, die schmerzliche,
Und doch in schwellendem,
Quellendem Muth.
Und in dem lebenden,
Wonnig erbebenden
Bild ihrer Augen,
Dem wundergestaltigen,
Lern ich den Zauber
Der Liebe verstehn;
Wie in der Freude,
Der frischen, gewaltigen,
So in dem Schmerz
Und unendlichen Weh'n.
