Komm mit! / Mußt dich aber eilen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Komm mit! 
Mußt dich aber eilen -
Sieben lange Meilen 
Mach ich mit jedem Schritt. 
Hinter Wald und Hügel 
Steht mein rotes Roß. 
Komm mit! Ich fasse die Zügel -
Komm mit in mein rotes Schloß. 
Dort wachsen blaue Bäume 
Mit goldenen Äpfeln dran, 
Dort träumen wir silberne Träume, 
Die kein Mensch sonst träumen kann.
Dort schlummern seltne Genüsse, 
Die noch kein Mensch genoß, 
Unter Lorbeern purpurne Küsse -
- Komm mit über Wald und Hügel! 
Halt fest! Ich fasse die Zügel, 
Und zitternd entführt dich mein rotes Roß.
