Der Guckuck wie die Nachtigall

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Guckuck wie die Nachtigall,
Sie möchten den Frühling fesseln,
Doch drängt der Sommer schon überall
Mit Disteln und mit Nesseln.
Auch mir hat er das leichte Laub
An jenem Baum verdichtet,
Durch das ich sonst zu schönstem Raub
Den Liebesblick gerichtet;
Verdeckt ist mir das bunte Dach,
Die Gitter und die Pfosten;
Wohin mein Auge spähend brach,
Dort ewig bleibt mein Osten.
