Dunkelnd über dem See dämmert das...

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Dunkelnd]1 über dem See dämmert das Abendrot,
Nur die höchsten Gebirge
Krönt noch die Glut, doch es sinkt, düst'rer allmählich, nun
Auch ihr Bild zu den Schatten.

Dort ach, fern in der Nacht, dort wo des Himmels Licht
Hinschwand unter den Wolken,
Dort dich wieder zu sehn, träumt' ich, und war dir nah -
Nah im Geiste, da warf mir
Über Dornen am Weg Blüten der Lufthauch zu,
Während ich dein gedachte!
