Am Flusse

Language: German (Deutsch)

Verfließet, vielgeliebte Lieder,
Zum Meere der Vergessenheit!
Kein [Knabe]1 sing' entzückt euch wieder,
Kein [Mädchen]2 in der Blütenzeit.

Ihr sanget nur [von]3 meiner Lieben;
Nun spricht sie meiner Treue Hohn.
Ihr wart ins Wasser eingeschrieben;
So fließt denn auch mit ihm davon.
