Dein süßes Bild, Edone

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dein süßes Bild, [Edone,]1
Schwebt stets vor meinem Blick;
[Allein]2 ihn trüben Zähren,
Daß du es selbst nicht bist.

Ich seh' es, wenn der Abend
Mir dämmert, wenn der Mond
Mir glänzt, seh' ich's, und weine,
Daß du es selbst nicht bist.

Bey jenes Thales Blumen,
Die ich ihr lesen will,
Bey jenen Myrtenzweigen,
Die ich ihr flechten will,

Beschwör ich dich, Erscheinung,
Auf, und verwandle dich!
Verwandle dich, Erscheinung,
Und [werd' Edone]3 selbst!
