Hat dich die Liebe berührt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hat dich die Liebe berührt,
Still unterm lärmenden Volke
Gehst du in goldner Wolke,
Sicher [vom Gotte]1 geführt.

Nur wie verloren, umher
Lässest die Blicke du wandern,
Gönnst ihre Freuden den Andern,
Trägst nur nach einem Begehr.

Scheu in dich selber verzückt,
Möchtest du [hehlen]2 vergebens,
Daß nun die Krone des Lebens
Strahlend die Stirn dir schmückt.
