Hätt' eine Höhl' ich am Strand

Language: German

Hätt' eine Höhl' ich am Strand fern und wild,
Wo der Wind heult, wo die Woge laut brüllt,
  Dort, mein Herz, weintest du,
      Suchtest verlorne Ruh,
          Gram schlöß' die Augen zu,
Ewig gestillt.

Falschestes Weib, o sag an mir, wo sind
Alle die Schwüre dein, leicht wie der Wind?
  Eile zum Buhlen dein!
      Magst dich des Meineids freu'n!
          Dann blick' in's Herz hinein,
Ob Ruh es find't!

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.
