Und wo noch kein Wandrer gegangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Und]1 wo noch kein Wandrer gegangen,
Hoch über Jäger und Roß
Die Felsen [im Abendrot]2 hangen
Als wie ein Wolkenschloß.

Dort zwischen [den]3 Zinnen und Spitzen
Von wilden Nelken umblüht
Die schönen Waldfrauen sitzen
Und singen im [Wind]4 ihr Lied.

Der Jäger schaut nach dem Schlosse;
"Die droben, das ist mein Lieb".
Er [sprang]5 [von dem scheuenden]6 Rosse -
Weiß keiner, wo er blieb.
