Des Mädchens Klage

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich bin so bleich, du bist so rot,
dein Glück blüht auf, mein Glück ist tot! 
Du führst die Braut bald zum Altar,
mich legt man still dann auf die Bahr! 
Doch fühlen möchte ich nicht wie du,
deckt man mein Grab mit Erde zu!

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 was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
