Vöglein im Birkenbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Vöglein im Birkenbaum
Singen hell,
Wellen mit weißem Schaum
Springen schnell,
Springen den Berg hinab
Sonder Ruh,
Tanzen dem Meeresgrab
Fröhlich zu,
Glitzern im Sonnenglanz
Wirbeln im tollen Tanz,
Rasten nicht.

So mit euch fliehn geschwind,
Welch ein Glück,--
Hieltest du süßes Kind
Mich nicht zurück!
