Die Mauer entlang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Mauer entlang,
Wo das Wässerchen rinnt,
Wo die Rosablüte des Apfelbaums
Das ernste, dunkle Baumgrün grüßt,
Da stehen die schönsten Blumen.

Von jeglicher Art,
Leis duftgewiegt und schattengeschützt
Lachen sie her aus grünem Gras;
Ach, wollen sie sterben im Frühlingsglanz?
Ich breche die flammglührote.

Dir, Liebe, geb ich sie, die du still
Im schwarzen Kleide traurig gehst
Zwischen Lautenschlag und blühender Pracht
An deiner Brust aufprange sie hell,
In dein Herz lohe ihr Lebensrot,
Dir singe ihr Duft aus tiefem Kelch:
Sieh, dir auch lacht die Au!
