Wüßt ich, ob es auch bleib verschwiegen...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wüßt ich, ob es auch bleib verschwiegen fein,
dann ließ ich euch sehn meine liebe Frauen.
Wer mitten entzwei bräche das Herze mein,
der würde sie gar schön darin erschauen.
Sie kam dahin,
durch die ganzen Augen ohne Tür gegangen
und sitzt darin
ewiglich gefangen.
