Stumme Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von Liebe war dein Herz erfüllt  -- 
Du wolltest schweigen;
Doch sprach dein Blick so treu und mild:
Ich bin dein Eigen! 

Nicht Worte durften dein Gefühl
Erkennen lassen,
Denn nur dein Auge kann so viel
In sich erfassen! 

Wie du mich liebst, vermag dein Blick
Allein zu zeigen,  -- 
In deinem Schweigen liegt mein Glück:
Du bist mein eigen!

Confirmed with Max Kalbeck, Aus Natur und Leben, zweite Auflage, Breslau: A. Gosohorsky's Budhhandlung, 1873. page 52.
