Nikolaus Franz Niembsch Edler von Strehlenau

(25 August 1802 - 22 August 1850 / Schadat)

Zweifelnder Wunsch


Wenn Worte dir vom Rosenmunde wehen,
Bist du so schön! - gesenkten Angesichts
Und still, bist du so schön! - was soll ich flehen:
O rede mir!? o sage nichts!?

Drum laß mich zwischen beiden Himmeln schwanken,
Halb schweigend, sprechend halb, beglücke mich
Und flüstre mir, wie heimlich in Gedanken,
Das süße Wort: »Ich liebe dich!«
