Ob rauh der Herbst schon haucht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ob rauh der Herbst schon haucht,
Und kühl die Erde ruht,
Noch wie im Sommer taucht
Der Schwan sich in die Fluth.

Er badet im Krystall
Der Wellen seine Brust,
Der welken Blätter Fall
Verdirbt ihm nicht die Lust.

Auch Liebe, treu und wahr,
Hat vor dem Frost nicht Scheu,
Sie bleibt im späten Jahr,
Im Unglück noch getreu.
