Im Walde rollt der Wagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Walde [rollt]1 der Wagen
[Bei tiefer stiller Nacht;]2
Die Passagiere schlafen,
Der Postillion fährt sacht.

Bei'm Försterhaus im Walde
Was bläst der Postillion?
Die [Passagiere]3 erwachen
Und meinen, es [wäre]4 Station.

Er bläst so sanfte Lieder
Zum Fenster klar empor,
Es hallt der Wald sie wieder,
Und kommt der Mond hervor.

Ja scheine Mond in's Fenster
[Des Liebchens hold herein:]5
Da zieht durch ihre Träume
Posthorn und [Mondenschein]6.
