Minnelied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es ist ein halbes Himmelreich,
Wenn Paradiesesblumen gleich,
Aus Klee die Blumen dringen,
Und wenn die kleinen Vögellein,
Im Garten hier, und dort im Hayn,
Auf grünen Bäumen singen.

Doch bas ist noch ein reines Weib,
Von Seele gut, und schön von Leib,
In ihrer Jugendblüthe.
Wir laßen alle Blumen stehn,
Das liebe Weibchen anzusehn,
Und freun uns ihrer Güte.


Confirmed with Ludwig Christoph Heinrich Hölty's Sämtliche Werke kritisch und chronologisch herausgegeben von Wilhelm Michael, Erster Band, Weimar, Gesellschaft der Bibliophilen, 1914, page 116.

This is the original version of Hölty's Blumenlied. It has first been published in a revised version by Johann Heinrich Voß; see below.
