by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Du Lilje meiner Liebe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Du Lilje meiner Liebe,
Du stehst so träumend am Bach,
Und schaust hinein so trübe,
Und flüsterst Weh und Ach!

«Geh fort mit deinem Gekose!
Ich weiß es, du falscher Mann,
Daß meine Cousine, die Rose,
Dein falsches Herz gewann.»
