Es blühen an den Wegen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es blühen an den Wegen
Viel bunte Blümelein,
Es fließen unter Stegen
Viel klare Wässerlein.

Die Blumen müssen bleiben
Allstets an ihrem Ort,
Die Wellen aber treiben
Nur immer fort und fort.

Das Mägdlein aus der Mühle
Steht an des Ufers Rand
Und wirft hinab ins Kühle
Die Rose aus der Hand.

Zieh nach dem Einen, Lieben,
Der's Sehnen mich gelehrt,
Sieh zu, wo er geblieben
Und wann er wiederkehrt.

Sag' ihm, es stünd' im Garten
Voll Rosen unser Strauch,
Die duftend seiner harrten,
Und harrend stünd' ich auch.
