Sonnenlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Siegende Strahlen sandte die Sonne, 
zu wahrer Wonne wollte sie wecken 
Tausend Töne aus traumhafter Tiefe,
Haltlosen Herzen zu holder Hoffnung.
Knospen, die kosend die Königin küsste,
Blüten zu wunderbar brennenden Blumen.
Vögelein fingen an fröhlich zu flattern
Wenn sie so wonnig die Wälder umwehte 
und aus den klingenden Kehlen kamen 
Lenzes selige lachende Lieder, füllten voll feurig 
flammender Freude Liebesverlangendes 
lichtloses Leben.
