Bei dir sind meine Gedanken

Language: German

Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und flattern, flattern um dich her;
sie sagen, sie hätten Heimweh,
Hier litt' es die nicht mehr.

Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und wollen von dir, von dir nicht fort;
sie sagen, das wär' auf Erden
Der allerschönste Ort.

Sie sagen, unlösbar hielte
Dein Zauber sie festgebannt;
sie hätten an deinen Blicken
Die Flügel sich verbrannt.

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.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
