Der Tod und das Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Mädchen
 Vorüber! Ach, vorüber!
 Geh wilder Knochenmann!
 Ich bin noch jung, geh Lieber!
 Und rühre mich nicht an.

Der Tod
 Gib deine Hand, Du schön und zart Gebild!
 Bin Freund, und komme nicht, zu strafen.
 Sey gutes Muths! ich bin nicht wild,
 Sollst sanft in meinen Armen schlafen!


Translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE IRI ITA SPA
