Erlaube mir, feins Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Erlaube mir, feins Mädchen,
in den Garten zu gehn,
daß ich dort mag schauen,
wie die Rosen so schön.
Erlaube sie zu brechen,
es ist die höchste Zeit;
ihre Schönheit,
ihr Jugend hat mir mein Herz erfreut.

O Mädchen, o Mädchen,
du einsames Kind,
wer hat den Gedanken 
ins Herz dir gezinnt,
daß ich soll den Garten,
die Rosen nicht sehn?
Du gefällst meinen Augen,
das muß ich gestehn.

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.
