Die Höh'n und Wälder schon steigen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Höh'n und Wälder [schon]1 steigen
Immer tiefer in's Abendgold;
Ein Vöglein [frägt]2 in den Zweigen
Ob es Liebchen grüssen sollt'?

O Vöglein, du hast dich betrogen,
Sie wohnet nicht mehr im Tal,
Schwing' auf dich zum Himmelsbogen,
Grüss' sie droben zum letztenmal.
