Täglich, wenn der Abend naht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Täglich, wenn der Abend naht,
Wandl’ ich hier am Waldespfad,
Und als wenn’s besprochen wär',
Kommst [auch Du]1 von ungefähr
Stets desselben Wegs daher.
    Ei, wozu? 
    Ach Du!

Und Du grüßest artig mich,
Kommst heran, als rief' ich Dich,
Und wir wandeln dann zu Zwei’n
In des Waldes Dämmerschein
Plaudernd immer mehr hinein, --
    Ei, wozu? 
    Ach Du!
