Dort unter'm Lindenbaume

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dort unterm Lindenbaume
   In linder Sommernacht
Hab ich im süßen Träume,
   Süß Liebchen, dein gedacht.
Und als ich rief im Träume
   Den liebsten Namen dein,
Da rauschten im Lindenbaume
   Viel liebe Melodein.

Die goldnen Äste klangen
   Gar wundersamen Klang,
Die goldnen Vöglein sangen
   Gar wundersüßen Gesang.
Nun bin ich von dem Singen
   Erwacht im Morgenschein,
Und hör' noch immer klingen
   Den liebsten Namen dein.

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.
