Der Bote

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am [Himmelsgrund schießen]1
So lustig die Stern',
Dein Schatz läßt dich grüßen
Aus weiter, weiter Fern' !

Hat eine Zither gehangen
An der Tür unbeacht't,
Der Wind ist gegangen
Durch die Saiten bei Nacht.

Schwang sich auf dann vom Gitter
Über die Berge, übern Wald --
Mein Herz ist die Zither,
Gibt ein'n fröhlichen Schall.
