Bleiche Blüte, Blüte der Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bleiche Blüte, Blüte der Liebe,
Leuchte über dem Laubendach,
Ruf' in klopfenden Mädchenherzen,
Blüte der Liebe, die Sehnsucht wach!
Deiner Kelche verströmender Atem
Zittert, verzittert so schwer und so stark,
Schwül von deinen duftenden Kronen
Weht der Nachtwind über den Park.

In der Laube lauschen zwei Augen.
Zögert und zagt ein Mädchenmund,
Sorge dich nicht und laß dich küssen,
Sieh, nur Sträucher raunen im Rund.

Und es ruft dir im pochenden Herzen
Weißer Jasmin die Sehnsucht wach -
Weiße Blüten, Blüten der Liebe
Leuchten über dem Laubendach.
