Lied, mit Tränen halb geschrieben

Language: German

Lied, mit Tränen halb geschrieben,
Dorthin über Berg und Kluft,
Wo die Liebste mein geblieben,
Schwing dich durch die blaue Luft!

Ist sie rot und lustig, sage:
Ich sei krank von Herzensgrund;
Weint sie nachts, sinnt still bei Tage,
Ja, dann sag: ich sei gesund!

Ist vorbei ihr treues Lieben,
Nun, so end auch Lust und Not,
Und zu allen, die mich lieben,
Flieg und sage: ich sei tot!

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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.
