Blindekuh

Language: German (Deutsch)

O liebliche Therese!
Wie wandelt gleich ins Böse
Dein offnes Auge sich!
Die Augen zugebunden,
Hast du mich schnell gefunden,
Und warum fingst du eben mich?

Du faßtest mich aufs beste
Und hieltest mich so feste;
Ich sank in deinen Schoß.
Kaum warst du aufgebunden,
War alle Lust verschwunden;
Du ließest kalt den Blinden los.

Er tappte hin und wieder,
Verrenkte fast die Glieder,
Und alle foppten ihn.
Und willst du mich nicht lieben,
So geh ich stets im Trüben
Wie mit verbundnen Augen hin.
