Tag meines Lebens!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tag meines Lebens!
Die Sonne sinkt.
Schon steht die glatte Flut vergüldet.
Warm atmet der Fels:
schlief wohl zu Mittag das Glück
auf ihm seinen Mittagsschlaf?
In grünen Lichtern spielt Glück
noch der braune Abgrund herauf.

Tag meines Lebens!
Gen Abends gehts!
Schon glüht dein Auge halb gebrochen,
schon quillt deines Taues Tränengeträufel,
schon läuft still über weiße Meere
deine Liebe Purpur,
deine letzte zögernde Seeligkeit.
