Fata Morgana

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du Pilger im Wüstensande,
Ich spiegle Wälder und Kluft,
Der Heimat blühende Lande
Dir wunderbar in der Luft.

Wer hielte in dieser Wüste
Das einsame Wandern aus,
Wenn ich barmherzig nicht grüßte
Mit Frühlingsdüften von Haus?

Und ob‘s auch wieder verflogen
In Luft und schien doch so nah,
Nur frisch durch die sengenden Wogen,
Wer weiß, wie bald bist du da!
