Naturgenuß

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im Abendschimmer wallt der Quell
Durch Wiesenblumen purpurhell,
Der Pappelweide wechselnd Grün
Weht ruhelispelnd drüber hin.

Im Lenzhauch webt der Geist des Herrn!
Sieh! Auferstehung nah' und fern,
Sieh! Jugendfülle, Schönheitsmeer,
Und Wonnetaumel rings umher.

Ich blicke her, ich blicke hin,
Und immer höher schwebt mein Sinn.
Nur Tand sind Pracht und Gold und Ruhm,
Natur, in deinem Heiligthum!

Des Himmels Ahnung den umweht,
Der deinen Liebeston versteht;
Doch, an dein Mutterherz gedrückt,
Wird er zum Himmel selbst entzückt!
