Drei Wunder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Als dich mein Arm zum ersten Mal umschlungen,
Von Staunen fühlt' ich dreifach mich durchdrungen: 
Zuerst, daß ich vermocht, so viel zu wagen,
Dann daß du's nicht vermocht, mir's zu versagen;

Das dritte war -- und sänn' ich jahrelang, 
Ich fass' es nicht, und werd' es niemals fassen -- 
Daß ich's erreicht, das dich mein Arm umschlang, 
Und konnte dich -- und konnt' dich wieder lassen!
