Wenn es rothe Rosen schneit

Language: German

Wenn es rothe Rosen schneit,
Wenn es Liebe regnet,
Oeffne, Herz, dem Glück dich weit,
Das so hold dich segnet.

Halt' im Liede fest den Glanz
Solcher Freudentage,
Doch ins Heut versunken ganz
Nicht nach Morgen frage.

Weißt du doch, der Rosenzeit
Folgt die Sonnenwende,
Und die Liebe lohnt mit Leid
Immerdar am Ende.

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, it is supported financially by less than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
