Der zürnenden Diana

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ja, spanne nur den Bogen, mich zu tödten,
Du himmlisch Weib! im zornigen Erröthen
Noch reizender. Ich werd' es nie bereuen:

Daß ich dich sah am buschigen Gestade
Die Nymphen überragen in dem Bade;
Der Schönheit Funken in die Wildniß streuen.

Den Sterbenden wird doch dein Bild erfreuen.
Er athmet reiner, athmet freyer,
Wem du gestrahlet ohne Schleyer.

Dein Pfeil, er traf - doch linde rinnen
Die warmen Wellen aus der Wunde:
Noch zittert vor den matten Sinnen
Des Schauens süße letzte Stunde.
