Im Rosenbusch die Liebe schlief

Language: German

Im Rosenbusch die Liebe schlief,
Der Frühling kam, der Frühling rief;
Die Liebe hört's, die Lieb' erwacht,
Schaut aus der Knosp' hervor und lacht,
Und denkt, zu zeitig möcht's halt sein
Und schläft drum ruhig wieder ein.

Der Frühling aber läßt nicht nach,
Er küßt sie jeden Morgen wach,
Er kos't mit ihr von früh bis spät,
Bis sie ihr Herz geöffnet hat
Und seine heiße Sehnsucht stillt,
Und jeden Sonneblick vergilt.

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.
