You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Daß ich im Frühling scheiden soll

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß ich im Frühling scheiden soll,
Das macht das Herz mir schwer:
Ich wär' nicht halb so kummervoll,
Wenn's nur nicht Frühling wär'.

Allüberall ist Maienlust,
Hell klingen Thal und Hain,
Ach, und allein in meiner Brust
Wird's still und öde sein.

Wem soll ich klagen meine Pein?
Die Rose blüht so roth,
Die Lerche wirbelt aus und ein --
Wem klag' ich meine Noth?

Ach, soll's einmal geschieden sein,
So sei's in Winterzeit,
Da tragen Lerche, Flur und Hain
Mit mir dasselbe Leid.

Da klagen all' zusammen wir
Um Ein entschwunden Glück,
Und alle träumen sie mit mir
Von neuem Sonnenblick.

Und wenn die Rosen wieder blühn,
Kehrt auch der Liebste dein;
Drum nicht im Frühling laß mich ziehn,
Im Winter soll es sein!
