Ich liebte es

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich liebte es, recht kalt zu scheinen,
Als rührte mich kein Kummer an.
Ich hasste es, wenn Männer weinen
Und war [ein nie]1 bewegter Mann!

Was heute mir im Busen dröhnte,
Nach Freiheit schrie und Tränen sehnte,
Das brach sich los mit einem Schlag,
Dass ich am Fensterpfosten lehnte
Den ganzen fürchterlichen Tag.
