Die Nonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Viel hundert weiße Liljen
Im Klostergarten stehn;
Die roten, roten Rosen
Sind noch einmal so schön.
Die roten, roten Rosen,
Die darf ich gar nicht ziehn;
Im Klostergarten dürfen
Bloß weiße Liljen blühn.
Drei rote Rosen fallen
Vor meine Füße hin;
Es fließen meine Tränen,
Daß ich eine Nonne bin.
Ach Reiter, junger Reiter,
Behalt die Rosen dein;
Mir blühen bloß die Liljen,
Doch nicht die Röselein.
