An meiner Seite sassest du

Language: German (Deutsch)

An meiner Seite sassest du,
Wie eine Blume schön,
An meiner Seite blühtest du,
Eine Rose anzuseh'n.
Ach, was sind Rosen auf dem Feld,
In aller ihrer Pracht,
Ach, was ist mir die ganze Welt,
Wenn dein süsser Mund mir lacht,
Kein Veilchen wie dein Auge blau,
Keine Rose wie dein Gesicht,
Du bist meine liebe, kleine Frau,
Meine Welt und mein Gedicht.
