Der Mai tritt ein mit Freuden

Language: German

Der Mai tritt ein mit Freuden,
Hinfährt der Winter kalt;
Die Blümlein auf der Heiden
Blühen gar mannigfalt.

Ein edles Röslein zarte
Von roten Farben schön
Blüht in meins Herzens Garten;
Für all Blümlein ichs krön.

Für Silber und rot Golde
Für Perlen, Edelstein 
Bin ich dem Röslein holde,
Nichts Liebers mag mir sein.

Ach Röslein, sei mein Wegewart,
Freundlichen ich dich bitt;
Mein Holderstock zu aller Fahrt,
Dazu Vergiß mein nicht!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
