Es ist ein Schnee gefallen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es ist ein Schnee gefallen,
denn es ist noch nicht Zeit,
daß von den Blümlein allen
wir werden hoch erfreut.

Der Sonnenblick betrüget
mit mildem falschem Schein,
die Schwalbe selber lüget,
warum? Sie kommt allein!

Sollt ich mich einzeln freuen,
wenn auch der Frühling nah?
Doch kommen wir zu zweien,
gleich ist der Sommer da!
