Flohen die Wolken im Abendwinde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Flohen die Wolken im Abendwinde,
Schimmernd im Mondlicht lag das Thal --
Hinter der Mauer unter der Linde 
Sahen wir uns zum letztenmal.

Flohen die Jahre, flohen geschwinde,
Wieder kam ich ins heimische Thal --
Hinter der Mauer unter der Linde 
Dacht' ich dein viel tausendmal.
