Als ich zuerst Dich küßte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Als ich zuerst Dich küßte,
Blühten die Thale so reich,
Dann, als der Lenz ging zur Rüste,
Sanken die Blüthen vom Zweig.

Tiefer drauf neigten die Aeste
Sich unter goldener Last,
Schnäbelnde Tauben im Neste
Hielten wir selige Rast;

Sahn nicht, wie früchtegebogen
Senkte die Zweige der Baum,
Wochen und Monde entflogen
Lenz uns und Sommer wie Traum.
