Du nennst mich armes Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du nennst mich -- armes Mädchen;
Du irrst, ich bin nicht arm.
Entreiss dich, Neugier halber,
Einmal des Schlafes Arm,

Und schau' mein niedres Hüttchen,
Wenn sich die Sonne hold
Am Morgenhimmel hebet:
Sein Dach ist reines Gold!

Komm' Abends, wann die Sonne
Bereits zum Meere sinkt,
Und sieh' mein einzig Fenster,
Wie's von Topasen blinkt!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE FRE

Note: at the top of the Schumann score is the following text: "Es wurde ihr wohl von unverständigen Kindern ihre Armuth manchmal vorgeworfen; das folgende Lied ist eine Antwort darauf."
