Gekommen ist der Maie

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gekommen ist der Maie,
Die Blumen und Bäume blühn,
Und durch die Himmelsbläue
Die [rosigen]1 Wolken ziehn.

Die [Nachtigallen]2 singen
Herab aus [der laubigen]3 Höh,
Die weißen Lämmer springen
Im weichen grünen Klee.

[Ich kann nicht singen und springen]4,
Ich liege krank im Gras;
Ich höre fernes Klingen,
Mir träumt, ich weiß nicht was.
