Auf ihrem Grab, da steht eine Linde

Language: German (Deutsch)

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

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