Wo ich zum ersten Mal Dich sah

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wo ich zum ersten Mal Dich sah,
Wie üppig grünt' die Wiese da.
Wo ich zum ersten Mal Dich sprach,
Da blühn die Veilchen unterm Dach.

Wo ich Dich küßt in dunkler Nacht,
Da lodert nun der Rosen Pracht,
Doch wo ich Abschied nahm in Leid,
Da rauscht nun eine Trauerweid'.

Bald jauchzt in Wonne mir das Herz,
Bald sinkt es ein in tiefstem Schmerz.
So blüht und rauscht das ganze Thal
Von unsrer Lieb, von unsrer Qual.
