Die Geige sang, da tanzten wir zusammen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Geige sang, da tanzten wir zusammen.
An seiner Schulter lag mein junges Haupt
Und meine Hände bebten in den seinen,
Doch nicht in Qual! Der gold'ne Reif des Glücks
Lag drückend fast um meine Kinderstirn,
Und selig lächelnd kämpft' ich mit dem Weinen.
