Im Regen und im Sonnenschein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Regen und im Sonnenschein
Wachsen des Maien Blümelein.
  Du mit dem Maienangesicht,
Mein tausendschönes Mägdelein,
  Vergiß mein nicht!1

Im Regen und im Sonnenschein
Soll auch die grüne Myrte gedeih'n,
  Die meine Hand in's Haar dir flicht,
Mein tausendschönes Mägdelein,
  Vergiß mein nicht!

1 Dresel here adds a stanza he may have obtained from an earlier version of the poem before it was revised and published.

Im Regen und im Sonnenschein
Schleichet die Liebe zum Herzen hinein,
Und grünet darin und umranket es dicht.
Du mein tausendschönes Mägdelein,
Vergiss mein nicht!

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.
