Den freien Flug ‑‑ wer gönnt ihn mir

Language: German (Deutsch)

Den freien Flug -- wer gönnt ihn mir
Hinauf in lichte Bläue?
So flieg ich denn zu dir, zu dir,
Du meine Lieb und Treue.
Durch Schnee und [Nebel]1 eil ich fort,
Wo ich dich weiß, du Süße,
Und finde schön den rauhsten Ort,
Wo ich dich heimlich grüße.
