Er klagt, daß der Frühling so kurz blüht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kleine Blumen wie aus Glas
seh' ich gar zu gerne,
durch das dunkelgrüne Gras
gucken sie wie Sterne.

Gelb und rosa, rot und blau,
schön sind auch die weißen,
Trittmadam' und Himmeltau,
wie sie alle heißen.

Komb und gibb mir mittendrin
Küßgens ohnbemessen.
Morgen sind sie längst dahin
und wir selbst vergessen.
