Lang' ist's her

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lange, lange mag es sein, 

Daß am grünen Wiesenrain 
Bunte Käfer schwirrten. 
Augentrost und Kukuksmoos 
Blühte tief im Waldesschooß 
Und die Tauben girrten. 

Lange, lange mag es sein, 
Dämmernd liegt jetzt Winterschein 
Auf den kahlen Bäumen. 
Traurig schleicht die Zeit fürbaß 
Und die Seele krank und laß 
Irrt in Träumen.

Confirmed with Heinz Osser, Lieder der Waldfrau, München: Dr. E. Albert & Co., 1893, page 32.
