Zu dem Bärgestirne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Er.
  Zu dem Bärgestirne
  Floh von uns der Winter,
  In des Pardels Hülle,
  Mit bereiftem Haar;

  Und vom blauen Himmel,
  Blau und hell und heiter,
  [Schönste! wie dein Auge,
  Schwebt]1 der junge Lenz.

  Um die [goldnen Locken]2
  Glänzet seines Kranzes
  Blumenregenbogen
  In der Sonne Strahl;

  Schimmert in des Abends
  Bräutlichem Erröthen,
  Wallt und wallt, und träufelt
  Süßen Labethau.

Sie.
  Linde Weste wehen,
  Athmen Balsamdüfte
  [Von Jasmingesträuchen,
  Und von Veilchenaun]3.

  Auf des Baches Spiegel
  Schwebt des Mandelbaumes
  Bild, und mahlt die Welle
  Mit des Purpurs Schein.

  Auf den Blüthenzweigen
  Hüpft und regnet Rosen
  Nieder, hüpft und wieget
  Sich die Nachtigall.

  Singe, liebe, kleine
  Nachtigall! Es [lauschen]4
  Deinem Lenzgesange
  Braut und Bräutigam.

Er.
  Alles, o [Geliebte]5,
  Alles um uns her ist
  Leben, alles Wonne,
  Alles Blüthenlenz!

  Alles, o [Geliebte]5,
  Wäre Frost und Winter,
  Wäre Tod und Trauer,
  Liebtest du mich nicht!

Sie.
  [Nun, Geliebter, blühet]6
  Unser Lenz der Liebe;
  Nun bedrohn sie keine
  Winterstürme mehr!

  Diesem [holden]7 Lenze
  Weichen alle Blumen,
  Alles Westgesäusel,
  Aller Vögel Chor!

Er.
  Mädchen, wie des Baches
  Welle, wallt dein Busen:
  Wie des Thaues Perle,
  Glänzt dein Himmelsblick!

  Deine Locke duftet
  Blumen; Weste haucht dein
  Odem; deine Stimm' ist
  Nachtigallgesang!
