Ein Röslein blühte am Waldesrand

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein [Röslein blühte]1 am Waldesrand,
Da küsst' es der Sturm im Vorübergeh'n,
Es ist entblättert, verwelkt, verdorret.
Ein Mägdlein hatte einen herzigen Schatz,
Der zog hinaus in die weite Welt
Und hat sie gelassen allein, verlassen.
Sie hatte auf Erden nun niemand mehr,
Er war ihr einzig Glück und Stern,
Nun ist ihr Herze verwelkt, gebrochen.
