Die Augen dein sind wohl von Samt und...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Augen dein sind wohl von Samt und Seiden,
Doch harter, harter Kiesel ist dein Herz,
Fühlt nichts von Liebeslust und Liebesleiden,
Ein starres, dickes, rundes Klümpchen Erz.
Schämst du dich nicht, wenn alles liebt und freit,
Ein Marmelsteinchen in der Brust zu tragen?
Ein Schleuderchen, womit in alter Zeit
David den Riesen Goliath totgeschlagen?
