Wenn du mir vorüberwandelst

Language: German

Wenn du mir vorüberwandelst,
Und dein Kleid berührt mich nur,
Jubelt dir mein Herz, und stürmisch
Folgt es deiner schönen Spur.

[Dann]1 drehst du dich um, und schaust mich
Mit den großen Augen an,
[Und mein Herz ist]2 so erschrocken,
Daß es kaum dir folgen kann.

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 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.
