You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Die Rosenlaube

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich habe mich neben die Welt gesetzt
In meine Rosenlaube;
Da bin ich in heiligem Frieden ergetzt
Bei Pfirsich und bei Traube. 

Und scheint mir Mond und Sonne herein,  -- 
Soll's ihnen unverboten sein. 

Und tritt zu Nacht die Liebste herein,  -- 
Das soll ihr unverboten sein. 

Und tritt mit Gunst das Alter herein,  -- 
Das soll ihm unverboten sein. 

Kein "Herr" nur darf mir je herein, 
Denn meine Laube, die ist mein. 

Ich habe mich über die Welt gesetzt
Als Falke ohne Haube,
Und bleib' in himmlischen Freuden ergetzt
In meiner Rosenlaube.  

Confirmed with Bibliothek der deutschen Klassiker, achtzehnter Band, fünfter Theil, compiled by Karl Arnold Schlönbach, Hildburghausen: Bibliographischen Instituts, 1861. Appears in Periode der Romantiker, page 459.
