Könnst du meine Äuglein sehen

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Könnst]1 du meine Äuglein [sehen]2,
Wie sie sind vom Weinen roth,
Ich soll in das Kloster gehen,
Und allein seyn bis in Tod.

Es sitzen auch zwey [Turteltäublein]3
Drüben auf [dem]4 grünen Ast,
Wenn die von einander scheiden,
So vergehen Laub und Gras.
