Es klopft an die Scheiben der Lindenbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es klopft an die Scheiben der Lindenbaum
Mit dem Zweige blüthenbehangen: 
Steh' auf!  Steh' auf!  Was liegst du im Traum? 
Die Sonne ist aufgegangen! 

Die Lerche ist wach, die Büsche weh'n,
Die Bienen summen und Käfer; 
Und dein fleißiges Lieb hab' ich auch schon geseh'n,  -- 
Steh' auf, Langschläfer, Langschäfer!
