Ich halte dich in meinem Arm

Language: German

Ich halte dich in meinem Arm, du hältst die Rose zart,
Und eine junge Biene tief in sich die Rose hält.
So reihen wir uns perlenhaft an einer Lebensschnur,
So freun wir uns, wie Blatt an Blatt sich an der Rose schart.
Und glüht mein Kuß auf deinem Mund, so zuckt die Flammenspur
Bis in der Biene Herz, das sich dem Kelch der Rose paart.


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

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.
