Marietta

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kabarett zum roten Strich. 
Leise flog der bunte Vogel
Über Busch und über Kogel 
Unabänderlich. 

Du und ich und dies und das
Unter Buchen auf dem Moose --
Eine kleine weiße Rose
Nahmst du aus dem Wasserglas.

Einmal fand ich deinen Schenkel
Kleine Rose milder Gier.
Große Mutter warst du mir,
Und ich war dir wie ein Enkel.

So wie wenn ich sterben müßte,
Dreizehn Jahre alt und jung,
Nebel und Erinnerung
Fiel ich zwischen deine Brüste.
