Auf hohem Bergesrücken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf [hohem]1 Bergesrücken,
Wo frischer Alles grünt,
In's [Land]2 hinabzublicken,
Das nebelleicht zerrinnt -
Erfreut den Alpenjäger.
Je steiler und je schräger
Die Pfade sich verwinden,
Je mehr Gefahr aus Schlünden,
So freyer schlägt die Brust.

Er ist der fernen Lieben,
Die ihm daheim geblieben,
Sich seliger bewußt.

Und ist er nun am Ziele:
So drängt sich in der Stille
Ein süßes [Bildniß]3 vor;
Der Sonne goldne Strahlen,
Sie weben und sie mahlen,
Die er im Thal erkor.
