Aus des Nachbars Haus
Trat mein Lieb hinaus,
Hielt ein Röslein in der Hand.
Und ich stand am Zaun,
Konnt' nicht satt mich schau'n,
Nicht ein Wort zum Gruß ich fand!
Und sie sprach zu mir:
"Sieh' dies Röslein hier,
Sieh', das soll dein eigen sein."
In der Rosenzeit
Ward das Herz so weit,
Ward das schönste Röslein mein!
