Es dunkelt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es dunkelt. Friede im Gemach.
Dein Herz fühl ich an meinem schlagen,
und deines Atems gleiche Züge,
der gleiche Schlag der alten Uhr
sind um uns her der einzige Laut.

Was ist uns jetzt die Welt?
Ein Einerlei, ein müßiges Treiben,
um Tand und Flitter eine närrische Hast.
O du! Du Glück!
Du Tau auf den Blumen meiner Seele!
Neige dein Haupt und küsse meinen Mund.
