Des Morgens in dem Thaue

Language: German (Deutsch)

Des Morgens in dem Thaue,
Da ist die Wiese schön,
Da glänzen Wald und Aue
Und alle Bergeshöhn.

Des Morgens in dem Thaue,
Da geh ich weit hinaus,
Und von dem Hügel schaue
Ich in das Thal hinans.

Des Morgens in dem Thaue
Da zog mein Schatz in's Thal,
Ach Gott, nun glänzt die Aue,
Als wären's Thränlein all!

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.
