Hab' ich Tage lang geblicket

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hab' ich Tage lang geblicket 
Auf die blaue Meeresflut, 
Und die Boten ausgeschicket 
Meiner hei├čen Liebesglut! 

Und sie konnten nicht erschauen 
Auf der weiten Meeresflut 
Jene liebehellen, blauen 
Augen, drin der Himmel ruht.

Eine Lotosblume nickte 
Endlich aus der blauen Flut,
Und wie sie mein Aug' erblickte,
Ward gestillt des Herzens Glut.
