Venus, du und dein Kind

Language: German (Deutsch)

Venus, du und dein Kind,
seid alle beide blind,
und pflegt auch zu verblenden,
we sich zu euch tut wenden,
wie ich wohl hab' erfahren,
in meinen jungen Jahren.

Amor, du Kindlein bloß,
wem dein vergiftes Gschoß,
das Herz einmal berühret,
der wird alsbald verführet,
wie ich wohl hab' erfahren,
in meinen jungen Jahren.
