Ein traulich Liedchen

Language: German

Ein traulich Liedchen tönet
Mir immerdar im Ohr,
Von einem armen Vöglein,
Das seine Braut verlor.

So einfach ist die Weise
Und doch so süß und zart --
In meinem tiefsten Herzen
Hab' ich sie treu bewahrt.

Der Mund, so es gesungen,
Er war mein einzig Gut, --
Er singt wohl nimmer wieder,
Weil längst im Grab er ruht!

Doch ich muß immer denken
An das, was ich verlor,
Denn dieses alte Liedchen
Klingt immer mir im Ohr!

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.
