Des Himmels Sterne gehen auf und unter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Des Himmels Sterne gehen auf und unter,
Und deine Augen leuchten immer munter,
Vom frühen Morgen bis zur späten Nacht:
Das hat die Sterne bös' auf dich gemacht.

Sie wollen einen alten Mann dir geben,
Auf daß du lernest nach den Stunden leben,
Und schlafen in der Nacht, wie sich's gehört,
Wenn Keiner dich in deiner Ruhe stört.
