Das Lied vom Meer am Mittag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Kreis
und heiß
von flimmernden Strahlen,
schimmernde Lasten,
ummauern den Kreis aus Glas,
aus geschmolzenem Glas.
Leer ist die Welt.
Ein Schiffsburg steigt und fällt,
bricht grüne Scherben aus der gläsernen Decke.
Die Welle schäumt,
der Mann am Steuer träumt,
träumt in die weite Runde.
Das ist das Meer,
das ist das Meer der Mittagsstunde.
