Wie schienen die Sternlein so hell, so...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Moravian (Moravština)

Wie schienen die Sternlein so hell, so hell
Herab von der Himmelshöh'!
Zwei Liebende standen auf der Schwell',
Ach, Hand in Hand: »Ade!«

Die Blümlein weinten auf Flur und Steg,
Sie fühlten der Liebenden Weh' --
Die standen traurig am Scheideweg,
Ach, Herz an Herz: »Ade!«

Die Lüfte durchrauschen die Waldesruh', --
Aus dem Tal und [von]1 der Höh'
[Wehn zwei]2 weiße Tücher einander zu:
»Ade! -- Ade -- Ade! --«
