Gute Nacht mein Herz und schlummre ein!

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Gute Nacht mein Herz]1 und schlummre ein!
In diesen Herbstestagen
Ohne Blumen und Sonnenschein
Was willst du schlagen?

Dein Schmerz ist aus, deine Lust ist todt,
Verweht sind Lenz und Lieder;
Der Liebe Röslein purpurroth
Blüht nimmer wieder.

Singend zog er ins Land hinein,
Der falsche, liebe Knabe -
Und du? - Im stillen Grabe
Schlafe mein Herz, schlaf' ein!
