Lied des Gärtners

Language: German (Deutsch)

Laßt euch pflücken, laßt euch pflücken,
Lichte Blümlein, meine Lust!
Denn ihr sollet lieblich schmücken
Meiner schönsten Fürstin Brust.

Glühet purpurn nach der Süßen,
Äugelt blau empor zu ihr!
Ach! ihr müßt es endlich büßen,
Sinken ohne Glanz und Zier.

Einst auch glühten meiner Wangen,
Meine Augen hin nach ihr:
Nun ist alles Rot vergangen,
Aller blaue Schimmer mir.
