Erster Blütenbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Blütenbäumchen in grünender Au!
Ringsum die Bäume allzumal
Sind ohne Blätter, sind steif und kahl.
Woher nahm dies eine sein Blütenkleid?
Hat ein Engelsgefieder es überschneit?
Ist meine (mein) Liebste(r) hier gegangen
Mit hellem Blick und roten Wangen
Und hat das Bäumchen aufgeweckt
Mit lust'gem Sang es wachgeschreckt,
Dass es blütenübersät
Sein Köpfchen nach der Sonne dreht?
Ein Blütenbäumchen in grünender Au!
