Meine eingelegten Ruder triefen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meine eingelegten Ruder triefen,
Tropfen fallen langsam in die Tiefen. 

Nichts, daß mich verdroß! Nichts, daß mich freute!
Niederrinnt ein schmerzenloses Heute!

Unter mir - ach, aus dem Licht verschwunden -
Träumen schon die schönern meiner Stunden.

Aus der blauen Tiefe ruft das Gestern:
Sind im Licht noch manche meiner Schwestern?
