Und du kamest in mein Haus

Und du kamest in mein Haus,
kamst mit deinen schwarzen Blicken;
sah ich ferne Palmen nicken
und du gabst mir deinen Strauß.

Gabst die zitternden Narzissen,
die wir in der [Wüste]1 pflückten.
Deine schwarzen Locken schmückten
meines Divans rote Kissen.

Kehre wieder in mein Haus,
laß die wilden Blumen blühen,
unsre junge Lippen glühen,
Gib mir, gib mir deinen Strauß!
