Schneeglöckchen lacht und jubelt

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Schneeglöckchen]1 lacht und jubelt
Daß es so frühe lebt,
Nicht wenn das Laub, das falbe
Im Herbst zur Erde bebt.

Schneeglöckchen hängt das Köpfchen,
Daß es so frühe blüht,
Nicht wenn im Maienglanze
Die Ros' und Lilie glüht!

O Menschenherz, du Blume
Im Lenz der Jugendzeit --
Du liebst und brichst, und der Frühling,
Bleibt Dir so fern, so weit!
