Wonniges Sehnen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wonniges Sehnen 
Blühest du wieder? 
Hab' ich noch Thränen?
Hab' ich noch Lieder? 
Harren, Verlangen
Hofien und Bangen,
Frühling der Brust,
Willst mich umfangen 
Ahnende Luft? 
Hoffen und Sehnen 
Walle nur fort,
Strömende Thränen, 
Schifflein der Liebe 
Wogt ihn zum Port! --
