O banger Traum, was flatterst du

Language: German (Deutsch)

O banger Traum, was flatterst du
   Mit schwarzen Flügeln um mein Haupt?
Du hast mir, du, die ganze Ruh
   Aus meinem Herzen wild geraubt.

Ich träum', ich steh an Baches Rand,
   Die Trauerweide hangt herein,
Die Quelle schwand, verdorrt im Sand
   Sind all die blauen Vergißnichtmein.

Vergessen, ach! vergessen sein
   Vom liebsten Herzen in der Welt,
Das ist allein die schwerste Pein,
   Die auf ein Menschenherze fällt.
