Drunten auf der Gassen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Drunten auf der Gassen 
Stand ich, sein zu passen;
Schlugen Nachtigallen 
An den Fenstern allen,
Und ich blieb alleine 
Bei der Blitze Scheine,
Bis die Nacht gewichen,
Und da bin ich frierend heimgeschlichen.

Über meine Wangen 
Ist der Tau gegangen,
Und nun lös' ich stille 
Meiner Locken Fülle.
Daß ein Sturm erginge,
Sich darein verfinge,
Mich zum Himmel trüge --
Weit hinweg von dieser Welt der Lüge!
