Schon wenn es beginnt zu tagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Alfonso:
 Schon wenn es beginnt zu tagen,
 wird in mir die Sehnsucht wach;
 Vögel fliegen, Wolken jagen
 und mein Herz will ihnen nach.

 Mittags lieg'ich an der Quelle
 an dem hellen Silberbach,
 Welle sendet er auf Welle
 und mein Herz eilt jeder nach.

 Seh'ich dann den Abend glühen
 und das Licht stirbt allgemach,
 möcht'ich mit der Sonne ziehen
 ihren gold'nen Strahlen nach.

 Nachts erglänzen tausend Sterne
 an des Himmels blauem Dach,
 mächtig zieht's mich in die Ferne
 ihrem süßen Schimmer nach.

 Und dann lispl'ich in die Saiten
 still ein Schmerz erpresstes Ach,
 schnell entflieht's in alle Weiten
 und mein Herze will ihm nach.
