Mit Pfeilen loosen

Language: German (Deutsch)

      Mit Pfeilen loosen
Die Husseiniten,
Wer Turans Mörder
Sich dürfe rühmen.
 
      Das Loos trifft Haschem,
Den hagern Räuber;
Wuthschnaubend greift er
Zur Todeslanze.
 
      "Wo er auch weile,
Ich treffe Turan,
Daß keinen ferner
Sein Name schrecke!"
