Diese Rose pflück' ich hier

Language: German (Deutsch)

Diese Rose pflück' ich hier
In der [weiten]1 Ferne,
Liebes [Mädchen]2, dir, ach dir,
Brächt' ich sie so gerne!

Doch bis ich zu dir mag ziehn
Viele weite Meilen,
Ist die Rose längst dahin;
Denn die Rosen eilen.

Nie soll weiter sich in's Land
Lieb' von Liebe wagen,
Als sich blühend in der Hand
Läßt die Rose tragen;

Oder als die Nachtigall
Halme bringt zum Neste,
Oder als ihr süßer Schall
Wandert mit dem Weste.
