Wenn der Fischer 's Netz auswirft

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn der Fischer 's Netz auswirft
Die Fischlein aufzufangen,
Spannt er still und hoffnungsvoll
Viel Beute zu erlangen.
Rasch wirft er die Garn hinaus;
Kehrt betrübt und leer nach Haus.
Fähret denn den andern Tag
Mit seinem Schifflein wieder,
Und von schönem reichem Fang
Sinkt das Schiff fast nieder;
So wir fuhren heut hinaus,
Kehren vergnügt und reich nach Haus.
