Lettisches Lied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach, Schwesterlein, ach, Schwesterlein,
Wie hast du dich so weit hinaus
Versprochen aus dem Vaterhaus!
Die Brüder haben ein groß Begehr
Und möchten gerne bei dir sein,
Und tragen es nicht länger mehr
Und reiten in die Welt hinein,
Und kennen, ach, die Wege nicht,
Und finden, ach, die Stege nicht,
Und irren fragend im Land umher.

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.
