Gern verlaß ich diese Hütte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gern verlaß ich diese Hütte,
Meiner Liebsten Aufenthalt,
Wandle mit verhülltem Tritte
Durch den ausgestorbnen Wald.
Luna bricht die Nacht der Eichen,
Zephirs melden ihren Lauf,
Und die Birken streun mit Neigen
Ihr den süßten Weihrauch auf.

Schauer, der das Herze fühlen,
Der die Seele schmelzen macht,
Flüstert durch's [Gebüsch]1 im Kühlen.
Welche schöne, süße Nacht!
Freude! Wollust, kaum zu fassen!
Und doch wollt' ich, Himmel, dir
Tausend solcher Nächte lassen,
Gäb' mein Mädchen Eine mir.
