Ich weiß es wohl, kein klagend Wort

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich weiß es wohl, kein klagend Wort
Wird über deine Lippen gehen;
Doch, was so sanft dein Mund verschweigt,
Muß deine blasse Hand gestehen.

Die Hand, an der mein Auge hängt,
Zeigt jenen feinen Zug der Schmerzen,
Und daß in schlummerloser Nacht
Sie lag auf einem kranken Herzen.
