Heute, Veilchen, hol' ich dich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heute, Veilchen, hol' ich dich,
Mußt du fort mit mir!
Und das liebe Veilchen spricht:
«Knabe, laß mich hier!

Laß mich hier im Sonnenschein
Auf der grünen Au!
Tages labt mich Maienluft,
Nachts des Himmels Thau.»

Alles was du wünschen kannst,
Hast du auch bei mir:
Maienluft und frischen Trank
Will ich geben dir.

«Wenn du mir auch Alles giebst,
Nimmst mir doch mein Glück:
Meine Heimat giebst du mir
Nimmermehr zurück.»
