Blau Veilchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blau Veilchen, 
Ihr meiner Liebe Bild!
Ein Weilchen 
Dürft Ihr im Lenzgefild
Und weicher Luft 
Den süßen Duft
der Liebe weih'n, 
Verhauchen euer frommes Sein 
Zum Opfer ihr.
Da braust so wild ein Sturm daher
und reißt euch 
eure zarten Blüten ab,
und senkt euch 
in ein allzufrühes Grab.
Du, dem ich alles, Herz und Geist
zu eigen gab, ob du wohl weißt,
was Lieben und Leiden,
was Sehnen und Meiden,
ach Gott, was in der Blüte sterben heißt?
