Unter Blüten des Mais spielt' ich mit...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Unter Blüten des Mais spielt' ich mit ihrer Hand,
Koste liebend mit ihr, schaute mein schwebendes
Bild im Auge des Mädchens,
Raubt' ihr bebend den ersten Kuß.

Zuckend fliegt nun der Kuß, wie ein versengend Feu'r,
Mir durch Mark und Gebein. Du, die Unsterblichkeit
Durch die Lippen mir sprühte,
Wehe, wehe mir Kühlung zu!
