Es stand auf duftender Aue

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es stand auf [duftender]1 Aue
Die Lilie im schneeigen Kleid
Und prangte unter den Blumen,
Als wäre sie herrlich gefeit.

Wohl brauste gegen sie wüthend
Der Sturm vom Norden hervor,
Sie beugte die lieblichen Glieder
Und blühte nur schöner empor.

Da hat sie mit giftigem Hauche
Der buhlende Zephyr umglüht:
O Lilie, arme Lilie,
Wie schnell bist du verblüht!
