Warm die Lüfte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Warm die Lüfte,
es sprießt Gras auf sonnigen Wiesen.
Horch, es flötet die Nachtigall...
Ich will singen:

Droben hoch im düstern Bergforst,
es schmilzt und [sickert]1 kalter Schnee,
ein Mädchen im grauen Kleide
lehnt am feuchten Eichstamm,
krank sind ihre zarten Wangen,
die grauen Augen fiebern
durch Düsterriesenstämme.
"Er kommt noch nicht. Er läßt mich warten"...
Der Eine stirbt, daneben der Andere lebt:
Das macht die Welt so tiefschön.
