An Die Schwalbe Poem by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing


Die 12te Ode Anakreons.

Schwatzhafteste der Schwalben, sprich,
Was tu ich dir? wie straf ich dich?
Soll ich dich um die Schwingen
Mit meiner Schere bringen?
Soll ich, zu deiner Pein,
Ein andrer Tereus sein?
Und willst du gern der Progne gleichen?
Musst du, zu fruehe Schwaetzerin,
Musst du von meiner Schaeferin
Mir meinen schoenen Traum verscheuchen?
