Flieg' auf, flieg' auf, Frau Schwalbe...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Flieg' auf, flieg' auf, Frau Schwalbe mein,
Du sollst mein Liebesbote sein;
Flieg' auf, flieg' fort über Berg und Tal
Und grüße und grüß' ihn viel tausendmal!

Und sag' ihm, wie in Not und Pein
Die Tage zählend ich harre sein,
Und wie mein armes Herz so schwer,
Und daß er doch bald wiederkehr!


Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

Text added to the website between May 1995 and September 2003.

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.
