Auf ihrem Grab, da steht eine Linde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf ihrem Grab, da steht eine Linde,
Drin pfeifen die Vögel [und]1 Abendwinde,
Und drunter sitzt, auf dem grünen Platz,
Der Müllersknecht mit seinem Schatz.

Die [Winde, die wehen so lind]2 und so schaurig,
Die [Vögel, die singen]3 so süß und so traurig:
Die schwatzenden Buhlen, [die]4 werden stumm,
Sie weinen und wissen selbst nicht warum.
