Schön ist's, wenn zwei Sterne
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Schön ist's, wenn zwei Sterne
Nah sich stehn am Firmament,
Schön, wenn zweier Rosen
Röte ineinander brennt.

Doch in Wahrheit! immer
Ist's am schönsten anzusehn:
Wie zwei, so sich lieben,
Selig beieinander stehn.

E. Wooge sets stanza 1
