O blühende Heide, welken wirst du...

Language: German (Deutsch)

O blühende Heide, welken wirst du müssen! 
Du Sternenantlitz, mußt du auch vergehn? 
Es gäb ein andres Glück als dich zu küssen, 
Und andre Wünsche als dich anzusehn? 
Ihr Seelenaugen, warmes Licht der Liebe, 
Erlöschen sollt ihr? nie mehr widerspiegeln 
Die goldne Bläue über diesen Hügeln? 
Du wärst dahin, und Erd und Himmel bliebe?
