Schau, was schleppen die uralten Zwerge?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schau, was schleppen die uralten Zwerge?
«Schleppen wunderbare Funkelsteine,
Die wir gruben aus dem tiefsten Berge;
Diene uns ein Jahr, so sind sie deine.»
Will nicht, will nicht eure Funkelsteine,
Will Smaragden nicht und nicht Rubinen
Wär' ein einzig Menschenherz das meine,
Wollt', ich all mein Lebtag darum dienen!
