Wunsch und Gruss

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Wenn immer doch Mondschein blieb!
Ich blickt' [all']1 Abend so [gerne,]2
In den Mond und die goldnen [Sterne,]3
Und dächte dabei in die Ferne:
Gut' Nacht, gut' Nacht, mein Lieb!--
 
  Wenn immer doch Mondschein blieb!
Und [sommr'ge]4 Abendmilde!
Und dem Herzen die schönen Gebilde!
Wie froh grüß' ich über Gefilde:
Gut' Nacht, gut' Nacht, mein Lieb!--
 
  Wenn immer doch Mondschein blieb!
Wie flimmerts am Himmelsraume,
Wie zittert's im Wasser-Schaume,
Wie lispelt's so halb im Traume:
Gut' Nacht, gut' Nacht, mein Lieb! --
