Ein edelkind sah vom balkon

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein edelkind sah vom balkon
In den frühling golden und grün ·
Lauschte der lerchen ton
Und blickte so freudig und kühn.

Einfiedler -- fiedler komm
Und gib deinen liebsten sang!
Das edelkind horchte fromm
Dann ward ihm traurig und bang.

Was sang er mir solches lied?
Ich warf ihm vom finger den ring.
Böser trugvoller schmied
Der mich mit fesseln umfing!

Kein frühling mehr mich freut ·
Die blumen sind alle so blass.
Träumen will ich heut
Weinen im stillen gelass.
