by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)

Küsse, die man stiehlt im Dunkeln
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Küsse, die man stiehlt im Dunkeln
Und im Dunkeln wiedergibt,
Solche Küsse, wie beselgen
Sie die Seele, wenn sie liebt!

Ahnend und erinnrungsüchtig
Denkt die Seele sich dabei
Manches von vergangnen Tagen,
Und von Zukunft mancherlei.

Doch das gar zu viele Denken
Ist bedenklich, wenn man küßt; -
Weine lieber, liebe Seele,
Weil das Weinen leichter ist.
