Was weckst du, goldnes Morgenroth

Language: German (Deutsch)

Was weckst du, goldnes Morgenroth,
Mich auf zu neuem Schmerz?
Wie süßen Trost der Schlaf mir bot
Für's arme, kranke Herz!

Ich sah im Traum sein liebes Bild,
Er war so fromm und gut,
Er küßte mich und sprach so mild
Von seiner Liebe Gluth.

Vorbei, vorbei! Die Sonne gießt
Ihr volles Licht herein.
Fließt, meine heißen Thränen, fließt
Im stillen Kämmerlein!
