Ist auch schmuck nicht mein Rößlein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ist [auch]1 schmuck nicht mein Rößlein,
So ist's doch [recht]1 klug,
Trägt im Finstern zu 'nem Schlößlein
Mich rasch noch genug.

Ist das Schloß auch nicht prächtig:
[Zum Garten aus]2 der Tür
Tritt ein Mädchen doch allnächtig
Dort freundlich herfür.

Und ist auch die Kleine
Nicht die Schönst' auf der Welt,
So giebt's doch just Keine,
Die mir beßer gefällt.

Und spricht sie vom Freien,
So schwing' ich mich auf mein Roß --
Ich bleibe im Freien,
Und sie auf dem Schloß.
