Der Wanderbursch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein duftig Sträußlein auf dem Hut
Und frischer Mut und junges Blut,
So läßt sich's fröhlich wandern!
Das Sträußlein kam von ihrer Hand,
Und um den Hut das grüne Band
Kam auch von keiner andern.

Und übers Jahr, o Lieb', o Glück!
Kehr' ich mit Strauß und Band zurück,
Daß sich ihr Herz dran freue,
Und ist verwelkt der frische Strauß
Und wusch das Band der Regen aus,
Hielt Farbe doch die Treue.



Confirmed with Von allen Zweigen: Neuere lyrische Dichtungen, ed. by Sophie Verena, Berlin, 1891.

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.
